China Exports First Shipment of Cooked Poultry Meat to US

28 June 2017

CHINA - China exported cooked poultry meat to the US for the first time, signifying that the country has reached an international standard of poultry processing and quality supervision.

Shipment of cooked poultry meat processed by Changguang Food Plant, which operates under the Nine-Alliance Group, a food factory based in Qingdao, a city in east China's Shandong province, arrived on 26 June in the US, according to the Shandong Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau.

According to China's People's Daily, the quarantine bureau attaches great attention to the export. Before the meat left the factory, quality-related documents and production activities were carefully inspected in order to make sure they meet the requirements of the US side and the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine, China's top quality watchdog.

The cooked poultry meat will be lab tested when it arrives in the US, which is in accordance with the regulations of both countries.

The US officially recognized that China has food production and food safety supervision systems that are equivalent to its own in March 2016. China-grown poultry will be authorized to enter the US market after the latter enacts a law to officially approve the import.
