The sector celebrates a major market opening in Southeast Asia this week: the Philippines. It is the missing piece for, after a little more than a year of negotiations with the Brazilian authorities, the country to receive the products of the sector.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) announced the Filipino acceptance for the three proposed models of International Health Certificates (CSIs). The documents opened the market for export of products promoted by the Brazilian Renderers sectorial project, such as meals, fats, blood products and palatabiliy ehancers , poultry, horses, cattle and fish.
The opening of this market is a direct result of all articulation work carried out by ABRA, MAPA and the Brazilian Embassy in Manila. Negotiations began in May 2021, when ABRA requested MAPA’s support in the process for the opening of negotiations. In addition to the letter filed, the Association also provided the Ministry with a consistent report, with arguments based on data, showing all the potential of the Philippine market for Brazil. A job that has just achieved its goal!
Business Connection with Philippines
In view of this achievement, the Brazilian Renderers project, promoted by ABRA in partnership with ApexBrasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency), reinforces the participation of companies in the sector in the Livestock Philippines Expo, between August 24 and 26, in the Philippines. The International Fair of Innovative Equipment and Technologies for Livestock Production is the Philippines’ main event for livestock, feed milling and meat industries.
In addition to the strength of face-to-face representation, with booth and materials created for the international fair, the companies participating in the Brazilian Renderers will also be able to participate in the business rounds within the Business Connection, a meeting held by the Project to promote negotiations in person and by videoconference.
Since 2012, ABRA and ApexBrasil have promoted the Brazilian Renderers project with the objective of promoting exports from the Animal Rendering sector – meals, fats, blood products, palatabiliy ehancers and hydrolysed protein of animal origin, only inedible products for animal nutrition. Through participation in fairs, workshops and other special commercial promotion actions, the projects value attributes of the animal recycling industry and its products – such as quality, sanitary status and production sustainability – and value the international brands of the products, fostering new business for Brazilian exporters.
