Determination reduces health requirements for exporting to Egypt

Egyptian government announced, in March, a decree extinguishing the obligation of poultry batches inspections by Egyptian-accredited veterinarians, which used to happen from slaughter to the delivery at the port of shipping. The determination eases the health requirements for Egyptians to import chicken and it reaches all the countries from World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
Besides reducing the bureaucracy for exporting, this change may reduce production costs and, consequently, the price of the product for Egyptian buyers. Until now, the slaughterhouses were responsible for payment of about US$200/day to the veterinarian, their flight tickets and also their expenses in Brazil.
According to the ArabBrazilian Chamber of Commerce, the reduction of exports costs might be around of 10%.
“Egypt is an important consumer of Brazilian beef meat and this determination meets our intention to open this market for chicken as well. It is possible that soon Egypt will be in the main destinations to where chicken is exported”, believes Tiago Fugolin, KIT International commercial director.
