Russian experts check Brazilian poultry farms

RUSSIA - On Tuesday a group of Russian experts is to start inspecting slaughter-houses and poultry farms in Brazil which supply meat products to Russia, a representative of Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture said in San Paolo.

According to his information, the mission will last till the end of July.

The Russian experts will begin working in Brazil's southernmost state, Rio Grande do Sul, which is the principal supplier of beef and pork to Russia. They must inspect about 200 enterprises all over Brazil, which currently have licenses of the Russian veterinary supervision service for supplying meat products.

As is known, on April 15 Russia's Agriculture Ministry abolished the temporary embargo on meat supplies from most Brazilian states, which had been imposed last September because of the outburst of foot-and-mouth disease in Para and Amazonas states. The embargo on meat supplies from these states persists.
