Bulgarian Pork export ban lifted by EC
The European Commission Standing Committee on the Food
Chain and Animal Health has lifted the ban on Bulgaria's pork exports to EU
member states and to third countries.
The decision allows enterprises, approved to trade with EU countries to
export Bulgarian pork meat to those countries and to countries outside the EU.
This doesn't include meat and pork products raised in back yards for family
The decision over-rules the limitations imposed on November 24, 2006
when the EC banned trade with life pork and pork products that have not been
subjected to heat treatment that guarantees the extermination of the classic pig
EC experts concluded from their research in Bulgaria, that
the National Veterinary Service had shown significant improvement in controlling
the pig plague including the monitoring of wild boars.
