WTO Ruling Brings Brazilian Poultry Back to European Tables

Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply informed that the decision announced Monday, September 12, by the World Trade Organization (WTO) in favor of Brazil in the dispute with the European Union (EU) over the treatment of salted chicken will allow Brazil to resume chicken exports.

The ruling determines that the EU should change the way it characterizes salted chicken. The definition that used to apply made consumption of the Brazilian product unfeasible.


For the Commercial Affairs director of the Department of International Agribusiness Relations, Antônio Carlos Costa, “the decision strengthens the country’s position even more as an important user of the WTO’s dispute settlement organ and, possibly, the biggest winner when it comes to agricultural issues.”


Costa affirmed that the victory confers negotiating credibility on Brazil and firms the country’s image as one of the most active members of the WTO.


The dispute began when the EU decided to reclassify Brazilian chicken, causing import duties to more than double and effectively excluding the product from the European market.
