The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture announced on the 15th that China has lifted the beef embargo imposed on Brazil since September 4. Previously, China, the largest buyer of Brazilian beef, suspended beef imports in September due to cases of mad cow disease in Minas Gerais and Mato grosso states. After the export was suspended for three and a half months, Brazilian beef exporters suffered heavy losses.

The three-month embargo has lost nearly US$1 billion in the industry

According to reports from Brazil Globe and Sao Paulo Page, China is the largest buyer of Brazilian meat. After three and a half months of export restrictions, domestic producers have suffered heavy losses.

Bruno Andrade, director of the Mato Grosso Meat Institute (Imac), thinks this is good news, but also pointed out that the current Chinese purchases will not immediately return to the months before the embargo. Level, the impact of the resumption of exports on the Brazilian meat industry will only be highlighted from mid-February to March 2022.

Will the recovery of beef exports affect Brazil's domestic meat prices?
