New Rules Introduced for Quality Beef Destined for Russia

06 May 2013

ARGENTINA – Stringent packaging and slaughtering rules are being introduced to ensure traceability for certain higher quality beef cuts to be exported to the Russian market.

After comprehensive evaluation of current beef practices and standards, the National Health and Food Quality Service (SENASA) has formalised a protocol that set minimal grazing requirements for fattened cattle.

The change also brings in tighter controls on cattle transportation and slaughter.

Cuts will need to be vacuum packed and labelled immediately. This will ensure traceability, SENASA has stated.

Officially published under code Resolution 187/2013, the resolution uses similar guidelines to those adopted by European member states.
