For several years, STC has assisted a process to open the export of excess slaughter waste from Norwegian pig production to China. Our approach has been to utilize a raw material which today is mainly not utilized in an optimal way. In China these supreme and often highly nutritious parts of the animal is highly valued. In November 2019, STC signed a major distribution agreement at the Expo fair in Shanghai, based on a letter of intent with a leading Norwegian player. A Norwegian import license for pigs to China was imminent.
The next step
In December 2019, COVID19 breaks out, and all processes are put on hold. This process is still on hold.
We still hope that this process will be resumed.
