BRF informed that China´s General Customs Administration had suspended its authorization for chicken exports from its unit in Dourados (MS), due to concerns over Covid-19 in Brazil.  According to the company, it was not officially notified of the suspension, but learned of it through a publication on the Chinese agency’s website.

BRF stated that it is already working with Brazilian and Chinese authorities to reverse the suspension as soon as possible.  The company said the new coronavirus cannot be transmitted by food and that Chinese agencies have already carried out tests to identify Covid-19 in 227,900 food samples at random from several countries and from the most varied companies, but “nothing was found until now”.

BRF is the largest chicken exporter in Brazil. The following chart shows Brazilian chicken exports to China since 2017:
