With Lebanon and Morocco, 51 Countries Are Now Banning Brazil’s Beef

Ukraine sanitary authorities announced to the Brazilian embassy in Kiev (the country’s capital) that they are expanding restrictions on Brazilian meat, according to information released by Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply.

Lebanon and Morocco also announced embargos on the Brazilian meat. A total of 51 countries have partial or total restrictions on the product.

Preliminary information by the Ministry of Foreign Relations states that the Ukrainian government is now banning meat not only from Mato Grosso do Sul and Paraná, but also from the entire country, as well as viscera, and any animal subject to the foot-and-mouth disease (FMD).

Argentina also increased commercial restrictions. They now include all of the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, as well as Paraná, Santa Catarina, São Paulo and Minas Gerais (in the central west, south, and southeast regions of the country).

On the other hand, Israel, one of the largest importers of Brazilian meat, relaxed restrictions. The embargo, which covered the entire country, now applies only to meat and viscera from Mato Grosso do Sul, Paraná, and São Paulo.

Countries that impose commercial restrictions on Brazil due to the FMD outbreaks are: South Africa, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Cape Verde, Chile, Singapore, Colombia, Cuba, Egypt, Indonesia, Israel, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Norway, Paraguay, Peru, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Ukraine, European Union (25 countries), and Uruguay.

The United States wasn’t buying Brazilan meet even before the outbreak of foot and mouth disease in Brazil.
