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.

The entrepreneur also said that as a result, "beef exports to that country (Honduras) will be halted just as that country had been trying to do, at first through arbitrary sanitary measures."

After coffee, beef is the most exported Nicaraguan product, having generated sales of $210.7 million in 2008.
