Two JBS and BRF pork plants on China's blacklist

The General Administration of Customs China announced that it has suspended pork imports from to Brazilian plants owned by JBS and BRF due to COVID-19 concerns, reports Mercopress. China is the largest buyer of Brazilian pork, beef and chicken. It has requested that meat exporters globally certify their products are coronavirus free, which BRF, JBS, and other Brazilian meatpackers have already done.

A total of six Brazil meat plants have now been blocked from exporting to China amid rising concerns over thousands of cases of COVID-19 among slaughterhouse workers in the country. Brazil has the second-worst COVID-19 outbreak in the world after the United States and China is more careful regarding meat exports after a new cluster was reported in a meat market in Beijing last month.
German producer Tonnies and four Dutch abattoirs are facing the same problem after outbreaks have been reported at their facilities.
