The Ministry of Agriculture of Brazil received, last Tuesday, information about the opening of the Indian market to Brazilian pork and pork by-products.
“It is now the Brazilian private sector's business to work so the exports become a reality and that the products are well received by the Indian consumers”, said the Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Supplies (MAPA), Mr Blairo Maggi.
The aliquot of the import tax for this kind of product in India is 30%, with the exception of sausages, that is 100%. Apart from the import tax, the importer also pays a GST (equivalent to the ICMS) of 12%. But the pork imported by India does not compete with the local pork, that has a different consumer niche. So far, the main pork supplier to India has been Belgium.
