China suspends imports from another four Brazilian meat producers

 

The General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) has temporarily suspended imports from four more Brazilian beef producers.

The Marfrig unit in Promissão (SP) had imports suspended for four weeks as of this Tuesday. In April, the same plant had already been embargoed for a week.

Another plant that had already been suspended was the one in Várzea Grande (MT), also owned by Marfrig. The new suspension will be valid for seven days.

China boosts Brazilian beef exports despite occasional suspensions

Two JBS meatpackers also had beef imports suspended by China for a week – the Senador Canedo (GO) and Lins (SP) units.

The GACC briefing does not explain the reasons for the suspension or make it clear whether purchases will automatically resume after the embargo expires.

In addition to the Brazilian units, China stopped buying from Russian and Uruguayan meatpackers.
