Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA) has revealed it will travel to the US to discuss re-opening the market for Brazilian beef.

Brazil’s agriculture minister Tereza Cristina will travel to the US next week, along with the Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, to discuss a number of issues regarding trade and exports.

The US has been hesitant to engage in meat trade with Brazil following recent turbulence in the country’s industry, including the rotten meat scandal​ and widespread corruption.

However, Cristina said that Brazil had fulfilled all the demands made by the US regarding the quality of Brazilian products and was ready to start exports to the country.

The minister added that it would also be willing to invite US officials to conduct a mission to Brazil to ensure it certified compliance with the requirements.

As well as re-opening the beef market, Cristina will also be discussing the possibility of opening the market for pork exports.

Cristina has conducted a number of visits​ to other international markets to boost Brazil’s reputation in the meat industry, including Peru and Vietnam. The minister also plans to visit China, Europe and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during 2019.
