For the past year, the US has refused to accept poultry from Israel due to unfit slaughter procedures that did not meet the American administration’s criteria. This led to Israeli poultry farmers losing millions of dollars.

“We have changed the standards, expanded the supervision in the slaughterhouses, improved the enforcement system of veterinarian services in the slaughterhouses, and I have now agreed to advance the inspection by the authorized American officials,” Simhon told the “Yedioth Ahronoth” daily newspaper.
