An article in reports that "The National Poultry Chamber (Canavi in Spanish) said in a statement this afternoon, that the National Service of Food Safety and Quality of Mexico has sent the permit to the National Animal Health Service (SENASA) of Costa Rica. '

Last week, the shipping company Mediterrean Shipping Company Mexico announced the activation of its system of alliances with Colombian and Costa Rican ports for special services of their refrigerated cargo ships for chicken and eggs. "The Company believes that the strongest maritime imports for the supply of the country come from Colombia and Costa Rica, although Mexico has already began importing eggs from the United States." For this purpose it has activated its system of alliances with the Colombian ports of Buenaventura and Cartagena and Puerto Limon and Caldera, in Costa Rica.

"Representatives from the companies indicated that, in this way, they hope to achieve transits in a maximum of seven days to the ports of Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán and Manzanillo, in Colima, both on the Pacific coast."
