Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) -- 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.
