GERMANY - Germany’s pork industry has turned its attention to China which it hopes will accept pigs ears, feet and other pork parts - parts that are shunned in European markets.

Berlin has made a deal in China to open the demand for the products, which are expected to bring a good price, according to the Irish Sun.

Pig's tail soup or chopped ears and soy sauce are craved by Chinese connoisseurs and pork exporters from Germany have already delivered 70,000 tonnes of pig tails, offal and other morsels to Hong Kong.

German pork production is set to reach 4.6 million tonnes this year, 30 percent of which is intended for export.
