Jump in Poultry Meat Imports to South Korea

03 September 2010

SOUTH KOREA - Chicken imports have soared 70 per cent this year.

South Korea's imports of chicken soared nearly 70 per cent on-year in the first seven months of the year as demand rose due to outbreaks of a contagious pig disease here and the World Cup season, according to a Korea Customs Service report.

Yonhap reports that chicken imports totalled 52,446 tons in the period from January to July, up 69.9 per cent from a year earlier.
