In brief: Brazil hails Mexico’s decision to allow Brazilian beef imports

* Brazil’s agriculture ministry has hailed Mexico’s decision to allow imports of Brazilian beef, which was announced on 6 March by Mexico’s national service for agrifood health, safety, and quality (Senasica). Senasica authorised the import of fresh, refrigerated or frozen meat from the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina, while the import of aged and boneless meat cuts was authorised for a further 14 Brazilian states. Senasica downplayed concerns over a recent case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, also known as ‘mad cow disease’) in the Brazilian state of Pará which resulted in a suspension of exports to China, saying that the “atypical” case “is not transmissible and presents no risk for animals or humans, which is why Brazil’s risk status for BSE is insignificant, the same as Mexico.” Brazil’s agriculture minister, Carlos Fávaro, described the Mexican decision as “a historic moment for Brazilian trade relations” that fulfilled “a dream that Brazil has had for over a decade”.
