Belarusian dairy export to China skyrockets

07 July 2018

MINSK – In January-May 2018 the export of Belarusian dairy products to China quintupled, BelTA learned from Belarusian Deputy Agriculture and Food Minister Igor Brylo on 6 July.

The official said: “In the first five months of the year the export of Belarusian dairy products to China increased by five times. All in all, Belarus exported some $10 million worth of meat and dairy products to China in January-May.”

Belarus has been working hard for the last few years to explore the Chinese market. “As many as 47 Belarusian dairy enterprises, two meat-packing plants, and five poultry farms have been authorized to export food to China. The export of dairy products is on the rise. The first few batches of beef have been delivered,” noted the deputy agriculture and food minister.

Belarus also intends to start shipping poultry meat to China soon. “We've been permitted to export frozen carcasses to China but we are also interested in selling parts of carcasses and semi-cooked products. I think we will soon be able to expand the choice of exports shipped to China,” added Igor Brylo.
