Filipino livestock and hog raisers, and meat processors can now export ‘Pinoy’ livestock and pork products to the rest of the world, as the entire Philippines was recently certified free from the dreaded foot and mouth disease (FMD) without vaccination by the Office International des Epizooties (OIE) or World Organization for Animal Health.

Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala said the OIE certification declaring the country’s remaining regions and provinces — collectively referred to as Zone 2 — enables the Philippines to finally export, particularly to nearby ASEAN and Asia-Pacific regions, livestock meat products, mainly pork.

He said negotiations are ongoing to export pork products to Singapore and Malaysia. Selected swine farms, abattoirs and meat processing establishments, initially in Mindanao, are being accredited by the Department of Agriculture through its concerned agencies, particularly the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) and the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS).

The OIE certification was received on behalf of the Philippine government and Sec. Alcala by agriculture assistant secretary for livestock Davinio Catbagan on May 26, 2011, in Paris, France, during the 79th general session of the OIE, May 22-27, 2011. The certificate was signed by OIE president Dr. Carlos A. Correa Messuti and director-general Bernard Vallat.
