China suspended the purchase of poultry meat from a BRF unit located in Lucas do Rio Verde (MT), one of the company’s largest factories.

The information was published by the General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) and confirmed by the company on Friday (4).

“BRF informs that it became aware through the GACC website about the suspension of its unit in Lucas do Rio Verde (MT)…”, he said.

The company stated, however, that it was not officially notified by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture.

BRF said it will take the appropriate measures and work on reversing the situation with the Chinese and Brazilian authorities, noting that it has strict food safety processes and quality controls.

The suspended plant had already had pork shipments embargoed by China in August last year, a suspension that remains in effect today, according to BRF.

In January, the Chinese market – the main buyer of chicken and pork from Brazil – suspended imports from two other Brazilian chicken slaughterhouses.

At the time, the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) said that it did not expect significant impacts for Brazilian exports of chicken meat, since the country had just over 40 plants authorized to export the product to the Asian country.

Data from the entity indicate that Brazil shipped 48,300 tonnes of chicken to China in January, an increase of 4.6% over the same period of the previous year, out of a total of 349,100 tonnes shipped by the country to the market. external in the month.
