Beijing Huadu Broiler Co. Ltd, the biggest chicken producer in Beijing, was one of 17 companies which had been exempted from export inspections by China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

Beijing has exported 22,400 tonnes of chicken for the year-to-date. The shipments were worth US$67 million, up 70 percent from the same period of last year.

Beijing Huadu Broiler Co. Ltd is located in the suburbs of Beijing and was founded in 1983. Huadu is China's first large-scale chicken integrator and has become one of the top ten industrialised companies in Beijing in recent years.

Although most of China's chicken exports go to Hong Kong, some of its processed chickens and frozen chicken products also go to Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Romania and Switzerland.

Japan accounted for most of China's 227,000 tonnes of frozen chickens exports in 2003 before bird flu put a stop to supplies. Japan also received nearly a quarter of its imported poultry from China that year, equivalent to a total of 122,000 tonnes. .

China has already began competing with Thai chicken products in its traditional markets such as Japan and Hong Kong. It is also eyeing other destinations such as South Korea, Middle East, and eastern Europe.

KaskikornBank, a Thai Bank, predicts China's export of chicken products would be 470,000 tonnes this year, up 31 percent from last year.
