Brazilian Renderers, a partnership between the  Brazilian Renderers Association (ABRA) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil), was present at the Livestock and Aquaculture Philippines Expo, another stop on the Asia 2024 Mission itinerary. The project was one of the exhibitors at the event, which took place between May 22 and 24.

With an eye on business opportunities on the Asian continent, ABRA and the Project took advantage of the opening of the Philippine market in 2022 for beef, pork, poultry and fish meals and fats in order to boost trade between the countries.

The Brazilian Renderers visit to the Philippines is part of the Asia 2024 Mission and had the important support of the Brazilian Embassy in Manila. The Deputy Director General of the Department of Animal Production of the Philippine Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Pahm Kim Dang, visited the Brazilian stand, accompanied by his team.

In addition to the strength of Brazil’s face-to-face representation, with a stand and materials created for the international fair, the companies participating in Brazilian Renderers also took part in the business roundtables within The Best of Renderer By-Products: Business Connection Philippines, a meeting held by the Project to promote negotiations, on May 22.

Growth potential and health agreements

One of the highlights of the event was a presentation on the health agreements between Brazil and the Philippines, which allow trade in various animal rendering products, such as meals and fats for ruminants and non-ruminants, fish oil and meal, blood products derived from bovine and porcine blood, and palatability enhancers.

Brazilian Renderers also recalled that a recent inspection carried out in 23 Brazilian animal  rendering establishments was successful, with all establishments meeting the requirements set by the Philippines’ Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI).

With the Philippines importing almost 330,000 tons of rendering products from various countries, Brazil, as the second largest producer globally, sees huge potential to increase its trade flow with the Philippines.

And Business Connection was the ideal opportunity to strengthen trust and business relations between Filipino buyers and Brazilian suppliers!
