On Wednesday (November 1st), the Minister of Agriculture and Livestock, Carlos Fávaro, announced that 55 Brazilian meat processing plants are now clear to export pork and beef to the Dominican Republic.

“This is great news to start the month of November. It’s a significant achievement and a fantastic opportunity, and we will advance by selling more pork and beef. These new approvals will generate more jobs in Brazil, ensuring the well-being of Brazilians,” celebrated the minister.

The approved plants are located in the states of Santa Catarina, Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul, Acre, and Rondônia, all of which have received international certification as being free from foot-and-mouth disease without vaccination from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).

According to Fávaro, this marks the first time that Paraná has received approval in a country that requires a certificate of being free from foot-and-mouth disease.

The Dominican Republic imports approximately 120 tons of animal proteins annually, making it an important market now open to Brazil.
