Swine fever affects production in China and South Africa

African swine fever continues to cause damage and not only to China. Last month, South Africa detected an outbreak in the Eastern Cape province. The infected animals were found on a community farm and all control measures, including isolation, were adopted.
In China, the disease has already been responsible for the loss of more than 1 million animals, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The Chinese also face problems with avian flu. In a report released by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), a new outbreak of the H5N5 subtype was recorded on a chicken farm.
“Brazil is gaining more and more space as a reliable supplier of animal protein. We have been among the main suppliers of chicken meat for a long time and now we also are growing in beef and pork. We are certified to export to different countries and, traditionally, we carry quality in our products and services”, argues Giordano Fiorentin, Trade Marketing supervisor at KIT International.
