Brazil: Success Story - Brazil Opens Market to American Lobsters

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

After several years of negotiations, on April 28, 2020, FAS/Brasilia received an official response from the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply (MAPA), approving the final language for a new lobster health certificate. For six years, the FAS/Brasilia facilitated negotiations between the competent regulatory authorities: the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply (MAPA) and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Both sides have agreed to final technical language to certify sanitary standards for American lobster exports to Brazil. The newly approved health certificate makes it possible for U.S. companies to export lobsters and lobster products to the Brazilian market.
