OREANDA-NEWS. Brazil has opened a market for Russian beef and products from it, according to the Rosselkhoznadzor website.

 At present, only the Bryansk Meat Company was allowed to supply Brazil with Russian beef and beef products, because the Brazilian inspectors had previously checked the enterprise.

 The Bryansk Meat Company is part of Miratorg, and its products include marbled beef and semi-finished products from it.  The company at the beginning of the year announced its intention to create three farms in the Bryansk region with grazing cattle in the meat sector, the investment in the project is 3 billion rubles.  The agricultural holding itself increased the volume of beef production in the first half of 2019 by 34% compared to the same period last year, to more than 69 thousand tons in live weight.

 Work in this direction was started in 2015, and on August 27 of the current year at a bilateral meeting of representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply of Brazil, a veterinary certificate for beef export was signed.
