South Korea to dispatch canned pork to Singapore

July 3, 2020

South Korea plans to ship its first batch of canned pork products to Singapore in July, a move that could pave the way for Seoul to further expand exports of processed food products in Southeast Asia. The first batch of 50,000 cans worth USD 60,000 will be shipped to Singapore with a combined volume to reach 1 million units annually, according to the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. The move came as outbound shipments of traditional items have tumbled due to Covid-19 impacts.
