China has opened its market to exports of Brazilian pig meat, approving three as-yet unnamed Brazilian pork processors, according to the president of the Brazilian pig meat producers and exporters association, Pedro de Camargo Neto.

“This represents the start of the opening of the Chinese market to Brazilian pig meat," said de Camargo Neto. "We will carry on working to gain recognition for the remainder of our pork processors.” More approvals are expected as the market expands.
