Mission Completes Inspection of Brazilian Pork Establishments

10 December 2013

BRAZIL - Russian health authorities recently paid a visit to Brazil and have recognised that the Brazilian agricultural defense system is equivalent to that of Russia's.

The Russian authority inspected establishments producing beef, pork and poultry. 

According to the Coordinator-General Inspection of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA), Luiz Marcelo Araújo, the technicians did not find any weak points in the agricultural defense system.

"The balance of the mission was very positive. The Russians praised the work done by professionals in cold storages, farms and laboratories, and compared our system to their's" said Mr Araujo.
