China yesterday suspended a sixth Australian meat processing plant from export, citing labelling and health certificate issues, as political tensions between the two countries continue to mount. China’s General Administration of Customs said on Monday night that it had stopped receiving applications and registration for beef exports from the Australian Meramist plant from December 7. The Meramist multi-species plant near Caboolture, north of Brisbane, is principally known as a horsemeat processor, but is export-licensed for frozen beef to China.
