PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-001847-17 Tainted meat scandal in Brazil

Twenty-nine companies were investigated, including the two giants JBS (the brands Friboi, Seara and Big Frango) and BRF, the owner of Sadia and Perdigão. The irregularities investigated include the repackaging of products approaching their sell-by date, the injection of water to increase the weight of the goods and the use of ascorbic and sorbic acid to conceal signs of meat degradation. Both acids are carcinogenic when taken in high doses. These crimes involve a network of corrupt officials from the official monitoring and control services. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-002079-17 Imports of contaminated meat products from Brazil.

Brazil is the EU’s largest external meat supplier and the world’s largest exporter of beef and poultry.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-002079-17 Imports of contaminated meat products from Brazil

The recent investigation by Brazilian Federal Police into two of Brazil’s largest meat processing companies has demonstrated that adulterated meat and contaminated products have been permitted into the food chain and have possibly been exported for consumption on the European market. The reported falsification of sanitary permits and export certificates involving agribusinesses and inspectors, and the revelation that chemicals have been used to improve the appearance and smell of expired meats, is of serious concern to European consumers.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-006030-13 Block on Brazilian meat entering the European Union

The relaunching of negotiations in 2010 gave fresh impetus to the process and brought the two parties closer. A large proportion of the beef imported by the European Union comes from Mercosur member countries, and one of the most sensitive issues discussed in the negotiations concerns meat imports from these countries, in particular the technical barriers that are currently in place. On 26 April 2013, two 35-tonne shipments of Brazilian meat were blocked on arrival at the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands on food safety grounds, after tests showed the presence of E. coli bacteria. 1.

According to this, a TaqMan real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method has been developed for specific detection of Brazil nut in foodstuffs. The method employs Brazil nut specific primers and probe, targeting 2S albumin gene (Ber e 1), and a positive amplification control based on 18S rRNA gene.

Food Policy Available online 28 June 2013 Tradition and diversity jeopardised by food safety regulations? The Serrano Cheese cas. Highlights The article discusses the notion of “zero” in relation to micro-organisms in traditional food. The article takes into consideration the empirical data from ethnographic fieldwork.

The article analyses artisan raw milk cheese consumption based on a cultural perspective of risk. There are cultural factors and shared values in risk perceptions of food. The traditional food valorisation depends on the food safety notion relativisation. Abstract Although some authors and policymakers have been considering the valorisation of traditional food as a strategy to revitalise rural areas, the commercialisation of such foods in formal markets demands strict compliance with food safety regulations.

Featured Articles Brazil: Competitive Factors in Brazil Affecting US and Brazilian Agricultural Sales in Selected Third Country Markets Thursday, August 30, 2012. WIKIPEDIA – Agriculture in Brazil.

The agriculture of Brazil is historically one of the principal bases of the country's economy, since the beginning of colonization until the 21st century, evolving from extensive monocultures to diversified production. Initially producing sugar cane, and expanding to coffee, the Brazilian agriculture has emerged as one of the major exporters of the world in diverse crops of cereals, fruits, grains, among others. It is from the Estado Novo (New State), with Getulio Vargas, that the expression, "Brazil, breadbasket of the world" was coined - accentuating the agricultural vocation of the country.[4] Norman Borlaug, Nobel Peace Prize winner of 1970, said in a visit to Brazil in 2004 that the country has become the major highlight in agriculture.

While the United States already exploits all their agricultural area, Brazil still has about 106 million hectares of fertile area to spread to - a territory larger than the combined area of France and Spain.[5] History[edit] Primitive farming[edit] UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE 12/10/12 Is Brazil the reservoir of future agricultural productive capacity?

JSC (Han) Wiskerke Professor of Rural Sociology Featured. EMBRAPA - 2012 - Global Warming and Agricultural Production in Brazil. The climatic changes foreseen for the next decades as a result of global warming will be a risk factor for agricultural production in Brazil. A study by Embrapa and Unicamp researchers forecast that the temperature increase in the country will reduce the favorable areas for the cultivation of soybeans, coffee, corn, rice, beans and cotton and can bring about a loss of R$ 7.4 billion by 2020.

The exceptions are sugar cane, which will have space to expand and even double and manioc, which despite the space loss of this cultivation in the Northeast, can be planted in other regions in the country. The results suggest that the geography of Brazilian agricultural production is going to change over the next years and to avoid additional losses for the county's development it is necessary to take action right away. ALL ABOUT FEED 05/10/12 Brazil: Animal feed additives market set to increase by US$1.9b. The Brazilian market for animal feed additives was worth US$1.3 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach US$1.9 billion in 2018. In the overall market by livestock, poultry had a market share of 50.1% in 2011 followed by swine, and then beef.

The market for animal feed additives is driven by rise of meat consumption in the country and the growing awareness regarding meat quality and dairy products. In 2011, Brazilian per capita meat consumption was 88.7 kg/year and is expected to increase up to 100.3 kg/year with an expected CAGR of 1.7% for the period of 2013 to 2018. The industrialisation of meat production is also fuelling the demand for animal feed additives in the country. Brazilian population is expected to reach more than 218 million by 2025 as compared to 196 million in 2011.
