The sector has reached production levels that overshoot local demand, and producers are now testing the export markets. Aníbal Bocaranda, president of the National Association of Hog Producers, said he went to Venezuela two weeks ago to negotiate the first shipments of pork outside of Panama.
Frozen meat and meat products such as sausages, ham and salami are some of the goods imported by supermarkets, restaurants and hotels in India.
From a report by Eurocarne.com:
The Foreign Service at the United States Department of Agriculture has prepared a report on the situation of the pork production in India and trade of this product.According to the report, the Asian country produced around 464,000 tons of this product from April 2014 to March 2015 and this amount accounts for 8% of the total protein intake in the country. It also states that the figure is 1.4% more than in the same period in previous years.
Sector authorities are waiting for documents endorsed by international agencies.
On the subject, Ariel Bucardo, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, said that they just need for international animal health agencies to certify the documentation collected by the country's agricultural authorities confirming that in Nicaragua, since 2008, no single case of swine fever in pig farms has been recorded.
