Korea lifts ban on Filipino chicken meat

Chicken meat exports from the Philippines to South Korea are now allowed, after one year and a half of prohibition, after the two parts agreed to resume exports. In March 2020, South Korea placed a ban on chicken meat and birds coming from the Philippines due to an H5 avian influenza outbreak that occurred in the country. In a memorandum to Agriculture Secretary William Dar, Agriculture Attache in Korea Maria Alilia Maghirang reported that the country obtained the final approval of the Korean government to lift the temporary prohibition of chicken meat and pet birds imports from the Philippines.
“We are pleased to inform the good Secretary that the Philippines can already export live birds (other than poultry) to South Korea. The PAO (Philippine Agriculture Office) Seoul closely coordinated with the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) and the Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency (APQA) for the swift correspondence and timely submission of requirements to lift the temporary suspension,” Maghirang said.
Based on Korea’s import health requirement for chicken meat exported from the Philippines, chicken meat refers to chilled or frozen meat, bone, fat, skin and tendon that are derived from chicken, informs The Philstar newspaper.
Currently, the Philippines have increased poultry imports from the EU, the US and other countries to put stabilize prices in the domestic market. According to a USDA report, 330,000 tonnes of poultry are expected to enter the Filipino market this year.
