Editorial: International Markets Opening Up

In the international markets, this week, a delegation from Brazil will be arriving in Europe in a bid to unlock the negotiations over increased access for Brazilian beef.

While the UK and Irish farming unions have expressed concerns about a potential trade agreement between the EU and Mercosur countries, Brazil is seeking to have more farms certified for export and also to have greater access to the EU for its Hilton quota beef.

In China, the Canadian agriculture minister has had a successful trade mission alongside the Canadian cattlemen, finding new markets and better access for Canadian beef.

The USDA is calling for nominations from poultry processing plants for certification to be able to export to Russia now that the trade barriers over hygiene concerns have been lifted.

For the New Zealand beef industry, the closeness of a free trade agreement with South Korea is producing hopes of new markets and increased exports.

The European Parliament has voted in favour of a ban for cloning animals for food production.

However, according to some animal welfare groups the move also puts immense pressure on the European Commission to come forward with clear legislation to enforce the ban and ensure that no products from cloned animals or their offspring are put on the European market.
