Denmark to Export Sausages to China

15 May 2014, at 8:52am

DENMARK - Denmark will be the first country to sell sausages and other heat-treated meat products in China.

During his recent visit to China, Danish Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Dan Jørgensen concluded negotiations on export authorization valued at 250 million DKK. Three Danish producers have been registered for authorization to deliver sausages to the Chinese market.

Danish Food Minister Dan Jørgensen and the director of the Danish Agriculture & Food Council, Søren Gade, are both very pleased to be able to announce the registration, which is a result of several years of challenging negotiations with Chinese authorities.

“I am proud and happy,” said Danish Food Minister Dan Jørgensen.

“Denmark is probably the first country in the world to sell sausages to Chinese dinner tables. This implies export earnings valued at 250 million DKK and secures jobs and growth in Denmark. I am very pleased that we have reached our target in such a fruitful dialogue with Chinese authorities and Danish agribusiness.”

Food Minister Dan Jørgensen accompanied Her Majesty Queen Margrethe and His Royal Highness Prince Henrik on the Danish state visit to China in April 2014.
