Animal Hygiene Laboratory from Jeju provincial government announced that it imported 870 kg of pork from other regions through Jeju Port on Oct. 13.
In addition, nine cases with 5.3 tons of pork from other regions will be imported through Jeju Port and Jeju International Airport by Oct. 17.
If pork from other regions starts to be sold next week, it will affect the price of pork in Jeju.
An officer from Animal Hygiene Laboratory said, “The pork will be examined for disinfection and swine fever. And “This is the first week for import of pork, so we don’t expect a lot of pork coming to Jeju. But we expect that the number of pork coming from other regions will gradually increase.”
From Oct. 10, Jeju provincial government announced that the ban on the import of pork from other regions of the country was conditionally lifted.
