In June 2019, Portugal and China signed a protocol allowing Portugal to export pig feet (swine offals) to China. This protocol follows a May 2019 bilateral agreement to facilitate Portuguese agricultural exports. Since late 2018, Portugal has also reached agreements to export frozen pork and table grapes to the Chinese market. With this latest protocol, in 2019, the Portuguese pork industry expects to export a total $11 million worth of pig feet to China. They also expect the Chinese market will open for all Portuguese swine offals by 2020.
