US pork exports to Taiwan continued to trend higher in September, climbing 184% from a year ago to 736 mt. Export value doubled to $2.1 million, according to data released by USDA and compiled by the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF)

Through September, exports climbed nearly 400% to 14,775 mt, with value increasing almost 500% to $47.5 million. 

US pork recently suffered a setback, however, due to incidents of mislabeling that led to heightened inspections of imported pork. While no food safety issues were involved, the findings generated unwelcome negative publicity for US pork that will likely dampen fourth-quarter demand.
