HONG KONG - The Centre for Food Safety will accept applications for importing chilled pork from the Mainland from August 15.

The centre said it has worked out an arrangement with the State General Administration of the Quality Supervision, Inspection & Quarantine on stringent control measures, ensuring the pork is safe.

The meat can only come from registered plants where slaughtering and processing procedures are strictly monitored, and each consignment must carry a health certificate issued by Mainland authorities.

The centre will inform pork importers about the application procedures and requirements
