Foreign Market Developments

FAS Steps Up Promotion of Forest Product Exports

Foreign Agricultural Service is gearing up to boost exports of forest products. "The
recent growth in manufactured solid wood exports indicates that the prospect for
continuing expansion is excellent," according to FAS Administrator Richard A. Smith.
"Sizable amounts of U.S. manufactured wood products already are being exported to
Japan, Europe and other regions, and it is certain exports of these products will
grow, helped by their high quality and availability."

Smith said the first step in giving greater emphasis to manufactured solid wood
exports will be the creation of a small team within the Foreign Agricultural Service,
which will work closely with the forest products industry. The goal of the joint
government-industry drive is to expand exports of U.S. wood products to existing
markets and to penetrate ones as yet untapped.

Smith said the new staff will give greater emphasis to the forest products industry
and formally recognize its relationship with the Foreign Agricultural Service.
Vernon L. Harness, formerly director of the agency's planning and evaluation division
for foreign market development, will head the new unit, Smith said.

Meat and Poultry Export Requirements for Saudi Arabia

Saudi officials will be announcing in the very near future new expiry date
requirements for frozen meat and poultry. Frozen product must carry a nine month's
expiry date from date of packaging (freezing). A grace period of six months will be
provided from the date of the official announcement.

Labeling must include production date (pkg. or freeze) plus nine months expiry date.
Printed labels with both dates preferred; however, stickers may be used if plastic
wrap tears on removal and sticker does not interfere with label language. Another
alternative would be to have printed production date followed by statement product
good for nine months from date of production. Also painted inserts are acceptable
carrying the date information. French birds observed in retail outlets have labeling
panel referring consumer to production and expiry date information on printed sealing
tape closing plastic bag.' Use of ink stamp is another possibility if ink is
indelible and legible; however, ink stamps are less acceptable. In all cases,
abbreviation of month is preferred rather than use of numbers.

All frozen products must still meet three months delivery date from date of
production. Reason given is to allow six months for distribution following arrival
in Saudi Arabia. Chilled vacuum packed meats must arrive Saudi Arabia three weeks
from production date with an expiry date of ten weeks. Allow seven weeks for
distribution. Processed product does not need muslim slaughter certificate but
source raw meats must be from muslim approved operations. Labeling must reflect
freedom from all pork tissue including lard.

Poultry drip requirements still 5 pct calculated on basis of purge after thawing.
Saudi Arabian officials recommend U.S. industry run test prior to shipment to assure
product not be detained in Saudi Arabia. All net weights must be metric.

Attention Organizers of Food and Agricultural Exhibitions

The Office of the Agricultural Counselor in Beijing has advised us that organizers of
exhibitions in the United States who are considering promoting attendance from the
Peoples Republic of China should direct a written invitation to the appropriate PRC
Organization. While the Agricultural Counselor can assist in distributing form
letters and descriptive exhibition brochures to such organizations as trade
companies, a specific invitation from the exhibit director or other sponsoring
official should be issued.
