Focused on promoting international business and expanding markets on the Asian continent, the Brazilian Renderers Project, a partnership between the Brazilian Renderers Association (ABRA) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil), held a series of official meetings with authorities from the Government of India.

There were three meetings with Indian authorities, all on September 11. The first was with the Indian Department of Livestock and Dairy (DAHD), dealing with health aspects and certification for livestock products. The Brazilian delegation then met with India’s Department of Fisheries (DoF) to discuss health issues and certification for fisheries products. With the Directorate General of Foreign Trade, Brazilian Renderers discussed the legal framework and trade facilitation.

Finally, the project met again with the Brazilian Embassy, going over the points discussed on the official agendas, now dealing directly with the Brazilian Ambassador to India, Kenneth Nóbrega, as well as his economic team and the Agricultural Attaché.
