India: Everything but the Squeal - India Opens Market to US Pork

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IN2022-0007

On January 11, 2022, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry announced that India and the United States agreed to a framework that will implement market access for agricultural products from both countries. Among the successes, India agreed to finalize the mutually agreed export certificate to allow the importation of U.S. pork and pork products. Resulting from this trade facilitation success, FAS New Delhi (Post) projects U.S. pork exports potentially expanding to the $750,000-$1 million range in this nascent but promising market. India in calendar year (CY) 2021 (January-October) imported over $2.4 million (about 524 metric tons by volume) of pork and pork products, mainly from Belgium and Italy.
