The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has restricted the import of fresh and chilled meat from Pakistan through the sea route, a suspension that kicks in from October 10, 2023.

The UAE’s Ministry of Climate Change and Environment updated its list of ‘approved slaughterhouses from countries, which are allowed to export meats and poultry meats to the UAE’ on Tuesday.

In its update, the ministry ordered to restrict the import from Pakistani companies through the sea route from October 10.

“From October 10, 2023, not allowed to import from Pakistan to the UAE, fresh chilled meat by sea,” the order said.

China allows Pakistani meat traders to export beef

The UAE also mentioned specific requirements for shipments of fresh and chilled meat before October 10 via the sea route.

“Type of transportation from Pakistan to UAE for fresh, chilled meat by sea, only allowed for (vacuum packed - and/ or modified-atmosphere packed – meat), and their shelf life (according to UAE technical regulation UAE.S 150- 1) range from 60 to 120 days from the date of slaughtering,” it said.

However, the order will not affect the shipments of fresh and chilled meat which are sent via the air route.

Currently, the UAE allows 18 Pakistani companies to export meat to the gulf country. The list includes The Organic Meat Company, K&N’s, Al-Shaheer Corporation, Fauji Meat Limited among others.

Mean meat is a product of Pakistan and most of the meat is exported abroad. No wonder it had become so expensive and beyond the reach for people living in Pakistan. Export of meat should be immediately banned and prices of meat should be reduced so that people of Pakistan should consume on cheaper rates. It's a matter of excellent nutrition.

Our port procedures for shipping by sea are probably just too slow, and the cold chain is probably also broken due to load shedding. Export by air maybe be more realistic, if we can get the airport and customs authorities to move fast enough that the meat doesn't rot.
