Thailand authorizes importation of Brazilian beef
Five Brazilian slaughterhouses were authorized to export beef to Thailand. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA), the Asian country approved the importation of bone-in beef, boneless meat and edible beef offals.
Thailand had already approved the import of dairy products from Brazil and, according to the MAPA, since January 2019 more than 60 foreign markets have already been opened for Brazilian agricultural products.
Last year, Thailand imported about $ 90 million of beef meat from around the world. Half of that total came from Australia, which has a free trade agreement with the Thais.
“Brazil continues to demonstrate its internal and external supply capacity and the quality of our products guarantees the opening of new markets. We have a strong structure, which ensures that all sanitary processes are complied with, to meet the demands of the most rigorous countries”, explains Giordano Fiorentin, Trade Marketing supervisor at KIT International.
