Delegation travels to Iran and ends threat against Brazilian beef

Brazil sent a mission to Iran, one of its main customers for beef, to reassure local officials and businessmen about the recent discovery of the causative agent of mad cow disease in an animal that died in 2010 in Paraná state. Sources from both countries said the visit, which ended on January 29, allayed the major concerns Tehran had, which threatened to block Brazilian beef exports.

For three days the delegation explained Brazil's sanitary rules to the authorities at Iran's Ministry of Agricultural. The delegation also insisted on reminding them of the decision by the OIE to maintain Brazil's classification as a negligible risk for the disease.

"The intention was to personally underscore the international guarantees of ratification," Antonio Camardelli, president of the Brazilian Association of Meat Exporters and a member of the delegation, told Folha newspaper.
