ABPA celebrates new pre-listing for Brazil, now for Singapore

Pre-listing authorizes all companies authorized by the Federal Inspection System (ie, authorized by the Brazilian ministry) to request authorization to export their products to this destination. Previously, qualification was carried out individually, with documentary analysis by the authorities in the Asian country. Now, the Singaporean missions will focus on validating Brazil's inspection system.

In practice, more companies will be able to access this market, as it reduces bureaucracy and democratizes exports to this market, which has high added value and is one of the most important destinations for our exports. In the case of pork, it is the fifth main destination in 2023, with total imports of 57.9 thousand tons between January and November, generating revenue of US$148 million. The country is also the eleventh largest importer of chicken meat from Brazil, with 121 thousand tons in the first eleven months of this year, with revenue of US$ 264.8 million.

"Singapore is a strategic and high-value-added market for animal proteins from Brazil. We hope to gain even more competitiveness there, increasing the number of players that will operate in exports", analyzes ABPA's markets director, Luís Rua.

This year, before Singapore, the United Kingdom, Chile and Cuba established the same equivalence system.

"There is a solid increase in the adoption of pre-listing for Brazilian exports. This is an important recognition of the credibility of our system and our country in terms of preserving processes, meeting criteria and the high quality of production and inspection, allowing unprecedented advances in the country's exports. It is also the result of extensive strategic work by the Ministry of Agriculture, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to open and expand new markets for the country", advises the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.
