Argentine resumes the export of poultry products to Japan

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Nation reports that the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan (MAFF) reported that after analyzing the information sent by Argentine through Senasa, the temporary suspension of imports of slaughtered poultry meat (and its products) and eggs from December 5.

Secretary Juan Jose Bahillo stated that "Japan's decision shows that Argentine continues to give guarantees of the safety and security of its agri-food exports", highlighting "the strategy proposed by the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, to recover the markets for this chain that stands out for adding value in different parts of the country.

It should be remembered that in February of this year, Senasa self-suspended exports of poultry products due to outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and adopted sanitary measures to contain the emergency that also affected other countries in the region.

In this sense, the measures implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Nation through Senasa, next to the poultry chain and the provincial and municipal governments, achieved the recovery of the status of a country free of HPAI on August 7, which together with the work of the Foreign Ministry allowed the reopening of external markets for these products, as is now the case with Japan.
