In an important milestone for Brazilian rendering, Peru has given the go-ahead for imports from Brazil of bovine meat and bone meal and powdered bovine and porcine blood products intended for animal feed (except ruminants). The announcement was made on May 22 in the Peruvian Official Gazette. This achievement opens up a promising new market for the country, expanding export opportunities for the animal rendering industry.

At the end of 2023, Peru published the International Health Certificate (CSI) for bovine meat and bone meal – now the country has also released the requirements for exporting this product. The sector is still awaiting the publication of the CSI for blood products and the procedure for qualifying companies so that Brazilian animal rendering  industries can effectively export to Peru.

The news was received with great enthusiasm by ABRA and Brazilian Renderers, a partnership between the Brazilian Renderers Association (ABRA) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil). The project has been holding a series of events in Peru since 2021, with the aim of promoting Brazilian products and gaining approval from the Peruvian authorities to import products.

The project will continue working to promote Brazilian products on the international market and open up new markets for the export of by-products from the animal slaughter industry.
