China suspended permits of 2 Canadian pork producers over labelling issue
Canadian Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau said on Wednesday that China had suspended imports from two Canadian companies, widening a diplomatic rift between the countries.
Gary Stordy, spokesman for the Canadian Pork Council, which represents hog farmers, said the labels contain basic information such as a shipment’s contents, weight and place of origin.
He could not say what the specific problem was with the labels on shipments from Olymel LP and Drummond Export, the two suspended Canadian companies. ■
