UAE imposes ban on fresh meat imports from Pakistan

According to ARY News, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has enforced a prohibition on the import of fresh meat from Pakistan via sea routes due to the discovery of fungus on the meat.
A restriction was imposed when fungus was discovered on meat sent from Karachi to the UAE by a firm. The restriction will be in effect until October 10.

It should be worth mentioning that Pakistan sends fresh meat to the UAE on a monthly basis for a value of USD 12 million, reported ARY News.
The majority of Pakistan’s meat exports go to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Notably, it was following an 8-year restriction, that Pakistan was finally able to export chickens and poultry products in 2017.
