The National Service for Agrifood Health, Safety and Quality (SENASICA) and the Danish government signed a Sectoral Strategic Cooperation Project (PCES) for the veterinary sector that seeks to improve safety in the processing of pork products.
The Mexican Government seeks to strengthen the pork production value chain - in terms of surveillance, traceability, and monitoring of toxic contaminants and veterinary drugs - and make strides to improve diagnosis and meat control.
Regarding pork safety, Mexico aims to strengthen its Contamination Risk Reduction Systems in all stages of production.
The agreement also lays out strategy sharing to prevent pig diseases -which represent a risk to animal health-, this will be indispensable to increase national production and protect public health and global competitiveness of both countries.
The agreement will also allow for information exchange and programs against African Swine Fever (ASF), preparing Mexico and Denmark to prevent its introduction and to develop effective actions in case of outbreaks.
In this regard, the Danish government will train Mexican technicians on its epidemiological surveillance and diagnostic systems for this type of disease.
