Cuba to import beef and dairy from Brazil

The Cuban government has authorized 37 Brazilian companies to export beef and dairy products to the country following inspections by Cuban representatives, Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture announced.

The new 37 approved exporters include 23 beef and processed food and 14 dairy and milk powder suppliers. With the approval, the number of authorized suppliers has increased from a previous 48 – 22 beef and 26 dairy producers – to 85. Beef exporters are based in the states of Tocantins, Mato Grosso, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Rondônia, Mato Grosso do Sul, Goiás, and São Paulo, whereas dairy suppliers are from Goiás, Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Espírito Santo.
The ministry went on to announce a new resolution from Cuba whereby inspections of prospective dairy and beef suppliers no longer require the presence of Cuban representatives, which should streamline the process. A similar policy applying to poultry and pork has already been in place since last year.
