Limited market access
Description
Faced market access limitations in about 20 of its meat exporting destinations, including its largest meat importers – China, Chile, Egypt, the EU, Japan and Mexico – which had introduced full or partial meat import bans or restrictions. This follows an investigation by Brazil’s federal police on some meat packers’ use of meat unsuitable for human consumption. Key importing countries have now lifted their bans.
