Nicaraguan Beef Exports to Honduras in Danger
On March 28, certifications granted by Honduras to Nicaraguan beef processors will expire.
Friday, March 20, 2009
The president of the Nicaraguan Chamber of Beef, Onel Pérez commented in laprensa.com.ni that although the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry asked for the renewal of the export certificates two months ago, Honduras has refused to inspect the processing plants.
Panama, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico continue to hinder the importation of beef from Nicaragua.
Certification granted to Nicaragua by the World Organization for Animal Health and the removal of tariffs could double sales of beef to Mexico.
Restrictions by Honduras, Guatemala and Panama on Nicaraguan beef exports have caused a reduction in revenues of about $60 million for exporters, who are demanding reciprocal measures to those countries.
The company C&D will send the first of the containers in which between 550 and 820 thousand pounds of various cuts of beef will be transported to the Taiwanese market during 2013.
