Chile: Chile Bans Brazil Meat and Poultry Imports

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Minister of Agriculture Carlos Furche took immediate actions on March 20th to suspend all imports of Brazilian pork, poultry and beef due to the recent scandal surrounding adulterated beef exports to the European Union. Industry sources told FAS Santiago that this is an opportunity for boosting U.S. poultry and meat exports to Chile, as it is a safe and reliable supplier. Chile is already the largest market for U.S. poultry/poultry products in South America with exports totaling $77 million in 2016. U.S. pork and beef exports to Chile were $54 million and $53 million respectively for the same period.
