“Important animal protein exporter, Brazil gets stronger every year, sustaining the main consumer markets. In this sense, pork has been standing out and has been increasingly sought after. We, at KITGarra, have excellent pork protein suppliers and we are a bridge between these slaughterhouses and importing countries. Our team is prepared to serve and facilitate access to the best Brazilian cuts”, comments Fabio Bonassi, KITGarra’s pork protein manager.
