Alibaba, US pork in­dus­try part­ner for China

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Alibaba and the US pork in­dus­try are team­ing up to sell pork prod­ucts to on­line shop­pers in China, where there is a short­age of pork along with ris­ing prices.

The US Meat Ex­port Fed­er­a­tion (USMEF), a trade as­so­ci­a­tion com­mit­ted to devel­op­ing in­ter­na­tional mar­kets for US beef, pork, lamb and veal, has re­cently worked with the group-buy­ing web­site Juhua­suan and on­line re­tail plat­form Tmall, both op­er­ated by Alibaba Group, to sell US pork on the Juhua­suan web­site.

A to­tal of 4,000 pack­ages of pork shoul­ders and chops were on sale from April 26 to 28. Nearly 3,000 pack­ages of pork were sold dur­ing the three-day sale, which at­tracted 300,000 shop­pers, ac­cord­ing to Lu Jian­ing of Alibaba. Juhua­suan said the sell­ing price was lower than the Chi­nese mar­ket price.
