Cyprus halloumi soon to be available in China

Agriculture Minister Costas Kadis

A protocol for the export of Cypriot dairy products to China was signed on Tuesday between Agriculture Minister Costas Kadis and Minister of the General Administration of Customs of China Ni Yuefeng.

Kadis thanked Ni Yuefeng for the successful outcome of efforts to allow the import of Cypriot dairy products, especially halloumi, to China, and requested faster procedures to register and license Cypriot dairies.

Ni Yuefeng praised the high standards of production in Cypriot dairies and expressed certainty that Cypriot halloumi would very soon be available on the market in China.

He added that there was an upward trend in Cypriot exports to China, which would be enhanced by the protocol signed on Tuesday.

During the meeting, Kadis also raised the issue of completing procedures to export other Cypriot products to China, such as fishery products and potatoes.

While in China, Kadis will visit the 1st China International Import Expo, which marks a new era in opening the Chinese market to third countries.

Kadis will also hold a series of meeting with Chinese wine and food distribution companies, with the aim to strengthen the effort to further penetrate the Chinese market.
