(Image source: Don Graham/Flickr)The Philippines’ Maharlika Agro-Marine Ventures Corporation has signed a one-year sales contract with two Japanese firms for the distribution of peking duck in Japan, beginning March this year

Maharlika Agro-Marine Ventures Corporation will supply Daigo Tsusho Company Limited and Aono Fresh Meat Company Limited with up to 50 tonnes of premium-cut duck meat, including breasts and legs, every month.

Vicente T. Lao, CEO of Maharlika Agro-Marine Ventures Corporation, said, “We had a trial shipment earlier this year to familiarise with the customs, regulations and export procedures of Japan. The company was told that the Peking duck shipment was well-received by the Japanese market.”

Japan currently sources most of its Peking duck products from Europe and the US but is now looking at alternative sources from Asia since the cost of shipping is much cheaper, company sources said.
