About Pork

I did not know until recently that New Zealand imported as much as 7,000 kilograms of pork a week – over 40% of pork consumed in the country. I bought a pack of nice looking (with marbling) pork steaks last week and it had US Pork sticker on it. So I made steak version of Crumbed Pork Chops   and bread rolls.

New Zealand imports pork from US, Canada, Australia, Scandinavia and China and more than 90% of imported meat is made into ham, bacon and other preserved meat. (Source: NZ Pork  & NZMPI )

Very interesting isn’t it? To call for ban or blocking of imported food is not that simple, as patriotic as one can be. Biosecurity issues will have to be looked into carefully as New Zealand is also an exporting country itself.
