Brazil to start exporting milk and dairy products to Japan
Now, products from Brazilian regions free of foot-and-mouth disease, including those with vaccination, can be traded in foreign markets.
Brazil is still launching a presence in the dairy sector, so the establishment of partnerships is essential to strengthen the segment.
"Japan is a very important customer because of its large consumption levels and potential degree of demand, and can demonstrate Brazil's ability to meet these requirements," said Odilson Ribeiro e Silva, Foreign Relations Secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply.
Globally, Japan is the world's seventh largest consumer of dairy products, representing a vast market for Brazilian products. Just last year, Japan imported $1.2 billion worth in dairy. ■
