VLADIVOSTOK, October 2. /TASS/. A Russian veterinary doctor will supervise the production of pork in China to see to it that exported comply with Russian safety standards, a spokesman for the Primorye and Sakhalin territorial office of the Russian veterinary and phytosanitary watchdog (Rosselkhoznadzor) said on Thursday, adding that China’s pork would be exported to Russia via four border checkpoints.
“In line with Rosselkhoznadzor’s instructions, pork exports from China will reach Russia via the motor and railway transport check point Pogranichny-Suifenhe and via the seaports of Kaliningrad, St. Petersburg and Vladivostok,” the spokesman said.
Pork will be exported by two butchering companies, Heilongjiang Baoquanling Shuanghui Food Industry Co. and Wangkui Shuanghui Beidahuang Food Co., Ltd., both headquartered in China’s northeast Heilongjiang province bordering Russia.
“The presence of a Russian veterinary doctor at their production facilities will be an extra guarantee of meat safety. The doctor will control the raw materials, the butchering procedure and veterinary examination,” Rosselkhoznadzor said, adding that the veterinarian would be present at pork dispatch too.
Earlier, Russian and China reached an agreement on the resumption of China’s pork exports to Russia, which had been suspended in 2004. Rosselkhoznadzor has already certified two Chinese companies incorporated with the world’s biggest pork producer WH Group to export their pork to Russia. WH Group manages Smithfield Foods, the leader of the United States pork market.
China is the world’s biggest producer of pork. In 2013, pork output reached 68 million tonnes.
