Argentina has resumed exports of poultry products to some countries after announcing a self-suspension related to a rise in bird flu cases.
The National Service of Agrifood Health and Quality (Senasa) signed bilateral agreements with Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia and Russia, according to the newspaper La Nación. The countries accepted the resumption of trade from areas where no cases of the disease have been reported.
“In cases where the product to be exported undergoes heat treatment, since this treatment inactivates the HPAI virus [highly pathogenic avian flu], these products can be exported with the same sanitary conditions of certified exports”, said the newspaper quoting Senasa.
There are also talks with South Africa to resume exports and with Mercosur and Mexico to send genetic material.
