Japanese mission to assess Brazilian slaughterhouses

Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture (MAPA) has reported that a Japanese mission is to come to Brazil to visit three slaughterhouses producing thermo-processed meat. On Friday Japan reopened its market to Brazilian thermo-processed meats.

The announcement was made in Tokyo at a meeting between the Secretary of International Agribusiness Relations, Tatiana Palermo, and the Deputy Minister for International Affairs at the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in Japan (MAFF), Hiromitsu Matsushima.

Japan had embargoed Brazilian meat since 2012 following an atypical case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease, in Paraná.

The Japanese mission will visit two plants in São Paulo and one in Rio Grande do Sul from Monday, December 7, to Friday, December 11. They will evaluate product controls and certification for thermo-processed meat products.
