Brazilian Pork Exports a Step Closer to South Korea

18 March 2016, at 6:00am

BRAZIL - Brazil is now a step closer to being able to export pork products to South Korea. For Brazil, the opening of this market could result in business of US$153.6 million per year.

"It is a major breakthrough in the negotiations that began in 2004, when South Korea still had a law that did not recognize the regionalization of Foot and Mouth Disease and demanded that the country as a whole was free of the disease," emphasized Tatiana Palermo.

"In 2008, the Korean government changed its legislation recognizing the principle of regionalization and, from there, began the risk analysis for the importation of Brazilian pork."

The Ministry of Agriculture will now check the requirements proposed by South Korea and the South Korean government will hold a public consultation. If there is no impediment, the final requirements for export of pork from Brazil to South Korea will be published.
