Ireland's decision to export live pigs, sheepmeat to China sparks backlash
While a ​​number of technical steps remain before trade can commence, the minister said in an online statement that he expected that once the remaining steps were completed, exports will "grow gradually over time, as Chinese consumers become familiar with the quality and taste of our Irish sheepmeat offering."

China is a substantial importer of sheepmeat, accounting for 38% of the global sheepmeat import market. In 2020, China's sheepmeat imports amounted to 365,000 tonnes and were valued at €1.47 billion at current exchange rates.

Imports account for 8% of total sheep meat consumed in China and the supply gap is growing annually, with average prices for imported sheep meat in China more than doubling over the last decade.
