A Cork meat plant can now export to China, it emerged this week.

Dawn Meats in Charleville has been approved by the Chinese authorities and is listed by CNCA, the Chinese Certification and Accreditation Agency. The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed confirmed the news on Monday. This announcement follows on from the beef market opening in April and from the ministerial discussions during the trade mission to China in May.

It was agreed that this plant had met the required standard and could be registered shortly. He said: “This will bring to 11 the number of Irish meat plants, excluding coldstores, which are approved to export to China – six beef plants and five pigmeat plants. The geographic spread of these plants, with knock on benefits to our farmers all across the country, is also notable. I am particularly pleased that Charleville and the Cork north west area will benefit from this.”
