The President of the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), Mr Francisco Turra, celebrated the opening of the Peruvian market to Brazilian pork announced by the Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Supplies of Brazil, Mr Blairo Maggi, during his trade mission in Peru. According to the Minister, this measure will come into force as of November 30th.
According to Mr Turra, this agreement will benefit the expansion of trade in South America, a region with an important volume of Brazilian pork imports.
Currently, from the then greatest Brazilian pork importers, three are South American. Argentina leads the imports, with 21.3 thousand tonnes in the first 8 months of 2017. It is followed by Uruguay, with 20 thousand tonnes; and Chile, with 14 thousand tonnes.
