Hong Kong Will Allow Imports of Chilled Beef, USDA Unit Says

Hong Kong will allow chilled beef imports from mainland China, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service said.

The Dec. 6 agreement between the Hong Kong and Chinese food-safety officials was intended to “increase the diversity of imported food and help maintain food prices at a reasonable and stable level,” the FAS said in a report posted today on its website. There is no limit on the amount of chilled meat that can be imported, according to the report.
