Filipinos shy away from canned pork

June 12, 2019

Filipinos are shying away from canned pork, especially those from ASF-infected countries like China, Hong Kong and Vietnam, a supermarket industry stakeholder told Asian Agribiz. Supermarkets and players that do not want to give customers the impression that they are taking risks on consumer health have taken off canned pork from China altogether, he said, adding he expects “a decrease in demand for canned pork of any brand from any source because of this.”
