NZ frozen meat ar­rives in China

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

The first ship­ment of frozen meat im­ported from New Zealand has ar­rived in Zhengzhou, He­nan prov­ince. The ship­ment, 13 met­ric tons of nine dif­fer­ent types of meat, de­parted from Tau­ranga Port on Aug 8. Zhengzhou is home to China’s first in­land port for im­ported meat. The port fol­lows a seven-day-24-hour work­ing sys­tem, which slashes in­spec­tion time to seven to 10 days from 30 days in coastal ports. The Chi­nese gov­ern­ment reached an agree­ment with New Zealand in March on im­port­ing frozen meat. The ship­ment was the first im­ported by an in­land port.
