Santa Catarina closes in on Japanese pork market

Pork from Santa Catarina has been approved by Japan's Animal Health Commission at the Ministry of Agriculture, taking it one step closer to approval for import by the country. The Association of Brazilian Pork Exporters and Producers (Abipecs) says exports to the Japanese market could begin in 60 days.

Pedro de Camargo Neto, president of Abipecs, believes the latest approval, issued on August 27, was the most difficult in the process of opening up the market and he sees no reason why the remaining stages should take long. On August 29 Enio Marques (Agricultural Defense Secretary) and Célio Porto (International Agribusiness Relations Secretary) will present their first proposal for International Sanitary Certificates (CSI) to the authorities in Tokyo.
