Since June 2, Argentina has been able to restart the export of poultry meat to the European Union, informed SENASA (Argentina’s national service for health and agrifood quality).

In a videoconference with SENASA leaders, the EU Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG Santé) confirmed that the corrective measures taken by the Argentinean organization satisfy the observations made during the virtual audit at the end of 2020. The entity will accept Argentina’s formal request to reverse the poultry meat export suspension imposed earlier upon the country.
