China imposed bans on meat from four of Australia’s largest abattoirs in May, citing health certification and labelling issues. Xiamen Xiangyu Group executive Eric Huang says the commodities trader will have to switch to US beef suppliers if the bans on the four abattoirs are not lifted in the next six months; the state-owned Chinese company purchases 20,000 tonnes of Australian beef a month. The federal government contends that the ban was ‘punishment’ for its push to hold an independent inquiry into the origins of COVID-19.
