China Approves Import From 38 Meat Factories In Brazil

Must Read

News in Brief:
– China approves 38 additional Brazil meat factories to export products, marking a historic moment in their 50 years of diplomatic relations.
– The move is anticipated to boost Brazil’s local economy, create jobs, and enhance bilateral trade relationship.

Brazil celebrates a significant milestone in its trade relations with China as 38 additional meat plants gain approval for exporting products, marking a historic move amidst the celebration of 50 years of diplomatic ties between the two nations.

With China serving as the primary destination for Brazilian beef, pork, and chicken exports, this development holds immense significance for local farmers. Last year alone, China imported a staggering 2.2 million metric tons of meat from Brazil, valued at over $8.2 billion.

The newly acquired licenses encompass a diverse range of sectors within the meat industry. Among them are eight export permits for chicken slaughterhouses, 24 for cattle slaughterhouses, one for a beef processing unit, and five for chicken, pork, and beef warehouses.

Brazilian authorities emphasise the economic impact of this breakthrough, foreseeing the creation of jobs and a surge in the local economy. Agriculture Minister Carlos Favaro underscores the significance, stating that it is a historic day for the country’s agriculture.

Industry players, including the meat lobby ABPA, express optimism over the newfound opportunities. ABPA highlights the rarity of such approvals, citing that the last time China cleared a chicken plant for export was five years ago. With the addition of 38 new permits, Brazil now boasts a total of 144 authorised meat plants for export to China.

Anticipation runs high within the Brazilian meat industry as the new licenses pave the way for increased sales to the Asian giant. ABPA’s markets director, Luis Rua, predicts a promising outlook for Brazilian exports, especially for new entrants into this lucrative market.
