Morocco has opened its market to Brazilian pet food products, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (Mapa).

Morocco’s market for pet food has enormous potential. Last year, Moroccan imports of dog and cat food for retail sales reached $47 million. In 2018, imports amounted to $12 million.

In 2022, Morocco was the second-largest destination in Africa for Brazilian agribusiness product exports, totaling $980 million. In 2021, exports had amounted to $532 million.

The Brazilian government has also announced the opening of the Mexican market for exports of equine semen from Brazil.

Negotiations for the product’s sale began in 2021, and the International Sanitary Certificate was approved in October of this year, with the issuance of the zoo-sanitary requirements for importation.

In 2022, Mexico imported over $297 million in non-bovine animal semen.

The opening of the Moroccan pet food market and the Mexican equine semen market is the result of joint efforts between Mapa and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE).
