Argentine continues to recover export markets for its poultry products

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of Argentine reports that Singapore communicated its decision to resume the import of poultry products from Argentina, thus, just over a month after temporarily losing its status as a country free of avian influenza, Due to the presence of the disease in commercial farms, and self-suspending exports of poultry products in compliance with international standards, Argentine is beginning to recover these markets.

The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) informed the National Agri-Food Health and Quality Service (Senasa) of its agreement with the proposal sent that the poultry, ornamental birds and poultry products to be exported come from areas located outside areas with HPAI cases.

The SFA requested to incorporate this agreement into the International Veterinary Certificate proposed by Senasa to cover shipments of poultry meat as well as ornamental and poultry birds.

Senasa must also inform the SFA if any of the establishments authorized to export poultry meat are located in the affected areas.

Thus, Singapore joins Uruguay, which approved the new export certificates for pre-fried meat, hydrolyzed viscera, egg products, canned poultry and pork and fresh meats, and products based on poultry meat from Argentine.

Previously, Senasa had also agreed to resume shipments to Russia, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong and some African countries, of fresh poultry meat from areas without the presence of the disease.

Likewise, the negotiations initiated by Senasa together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Nation with other commercial partners continue in order to readjust the export certificates and resume shipments.

Negotiations are also underway with countries that import thermo-processed poultry meat, powdered or pasteurized eggs, given that these products do not carry risk since these treatments inactivate the HPAI virus, and work is being done to restore exports of poultry genetics to Mercosur countries and Mexico, in compliance with international recommendations for the exchange of these goods.
