The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance of Russia, after analyzing the Action Plan developed by Brazil and the results of laboratorial testing, re-opened the Russian market for Brazilian beef and pork meat.
The decision was announced yesterday (October 31th/2018) with a list of nine slaughterhouses (SH) allowed to export to Russian market (five beef and four pork). Both, Producer´s Association (ABPA and ABIEC), are celebrating this decision and believe that other plants will be authorized very soon as well.
For Brazil it is not only a step to recover an important market such as Russia but also an acknowledgment of high quality and assurance of Brazilian meat.
