Following the market diversification policy for the import and export of agrifood goods, and with the aim of guaranteeing the supply of several products at affordable costs, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development and Food (SAGARPA), has informed of the entry of the first shipment of German pork.

The National Service for Agri-Food Health, Safety and Quality (SENASICA) reminded that faced with the tariffs imposed by the Mexican government to several USA products, among which pork and fresh apples stand out, there are health protocols established with other countries in order to supply the national market.

In this case, the pork shipment arrived to the harbour of Veracruz, where SENASICA staff inspected physically, together with its documents, the 25.5-tonnes frozen pork belly container imported by the Federal Inspection Type (TIF) establishment 359, located in the sate of Jalisco and originating from a verified and authorised plant located in Wiedenbrück (Germany).

The organisms highlighted that the imports of pork from Canada, Denmark, Spain, France, Germany, Chile, Italy, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand, fulfil the health requirements imposed by the SAGARPA for the entry of these kind of products.

It is important to underline that Mexicans consume 2.11 million tonnes of pork products per year and that its national production is 1.45 million tonnes per year, of which 105,000 tonnes are exported, and that they import an annual average of 754,000 tonnes.
