Poultry Exports to Honduras Halted

Despite an agreement reached between the two countries, El Salvador´s poultry industry has not yet been able to resume exports of eggs to Honduras.

Friday, January 21, 2011

According to provisions agreed to last year, the National Agricultural Health of Honduras (SENASA) should inspect poultry farms in El Salvador prior to approval of exports. This in order to make sure the eggs do not come from birds vaccinated against the flu.

Salvadoran Poultry producers say that inspections have been requested but Honduran authorities have not responded the requests.
