Brazilian cashew regulations

This article was originally published in Foodnews

BRAZIL's ministry of agriculture has set out new regulations governing cashew imports from the Ivory Coast. Cashew nuts "must be fumigated before being shipped to eliminate the possible spread of pests that are not yet present in Brazil, guaranteeing imported product safety and protecting Brazilian agriculture," the ministry said. Cashews must also be packaged in new bags and be free of residue. Imported products will be inspected when entering the country, and if they are found to contain pests, the country of origin will be informed and shipments can be suspended.
