Brazil can once again start exporting beef to China after the final "bureaucratic procedures" were overcome following an agreement last year to end the near-three year ban.

The export ban was introduced in December 2012, after a case of BSE was discovered in the Brazilian herd. Back in 2012 before the ban, Brazil exported $37.7m of beef to China.

Last year, during a visit to Brazil, Chinese president Xi Jinping agreed to break the embargo. However, it is only now that all the bureaucratic procedures have been completed, including the issuing of health certificates by Chinese vets.

According to ABIEC, the Brazilian Association of Meat Exporting Industries, nine Brazilian beef plants were this week approved by the Chinese government, with an estimated export capacity of $180m. It is expected 17 more will be authorised in June when a Brazilian delegation visits China.
