Philippines lifts embargo on Brazilian chicken meat

The Philippines suspended imports from Brazil in August, after a municipality in China detected traces of the coronavirus on packaging material.

However, Philippines lifted the embargo on Brazilian chicken meat mid Sept. The measure came after the Brazilian government showed that the production chain is adopting preventive measures against the new coronavirus. However, the Asian country will demand packages with seals in order to guarantee products handled in factories that follow strict sanitary and hygiene measures.
