Although previously barred from selling to the country, Brazilian food processor BRF SA has resumed pork exports to Russia from four plants.

The plants are in the midwestern Brazilian cities of Lucas do Rio Verde and Rio Verde and in the southern cities of Campos Novos and Lajeado, reported Reuters.

Russia's resumption of imports from the largest Brazilian meat producers will boost Brazil’s pork exports by 20,000 tonnes this year to 640,000 tonnes in total, Brazilian meat industry group ABPA said.
