UK signs $79 million pork deal with China
May 18 , 2012
The UK has signed a $79 million trade deal to sell British pork to China, the world's biggest market for pig meat.
The deal comes after five years of talks, and discussions over lamb and beef exports could soon follow.
Consumption of meat in China is increasing rapidly and the Chinese enjoy eating parts of the so-called fifth quarter of the pig, which goes to waste in the UK.
