China’s Food Exports to Japan Fall Following Dumpling Case

After finding traces of pesticide on dumplings from China this January and February, ’s imports of Chinese food have dropped dramatically. From AP:

China’s food exports to Japan, a key market, plunged 30 percent in February, hurt by a scare over poisoned Chinese-made dumplings, according to data reported Friday.

Japan is the third-largest market for Chinese exporters of fish, dumplings and other processed food, and the drop in sales is a severe blow to the fast-growing food industry in China.

China’s food exports to Japan in February totaled 186,000 tons, down 30 percent from the same month in 2007, the General Administration of Customs reported.

“Influenced by such things as the `poisoned dumpling incident,’ our country’s food exports to Japan fell one after the other,” said a customs agency statement.
