Canada approves Paraguay beef imports

Canada approves Paraguay beef imports

Government officials confirmed earlier this week that Paraguayan beef is permitted for export to Canada following clearance from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

According to information from the Paraguayan government, nine meat plants in the country are authorized to ship beef products to Canada. 

José Carlos Martin, president of the National Service of Quality and Animal Health (Senacsa), said the two governments worked on the deal for almost three-and-a-half years.

Martin added that the volume for importation could be very similar to the US market. He explained that the volume of exports will depend on the private sector.

For 2024, Paraguay could export 3,000 to 4,000 tons of meat to the Canadian market.

Paraguay President Santiago Pena posted about the deal on social media expressing his support.
