Global Meat News recently reported that Mexico have now granted an export licence to 26 new Brazilian establishments for poultry meat. The licensing will more than double the number of Brazilian companies able to export to Mexico and marks a significant move for the country’s poultry sector.
The news comes after the announcement of an action plan by the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), who pledged to prove to the European Union (EU) that Brazil’s poultry is safe to consume. The plan aims to address EU consumer concerns following a series of food safety scandals at some major meat processors and is backed by the Brazilian poultry sector in a bid to generate consumer confidence. Earlier this year the EU banned meat imports from several Brazilian suppliers, affecting 30-35% of Brazil’s exports to Europe, forcing companies to find new markets.
With global meat production and consumption showing rapid growth over the previous 50 years and exports projected to be 20% higher in 2027, it is essential that the industry continually improve the standards of global food safety.
