Kuwait opens the market for Brazilian beef

Starting mid-February, Brazilian beef can be exported to Kuwait after several months of negotiations, informs the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA). "More good news about the opening of yet another market for Brazilian beef: Kuwait, the country we visited in September, when we started this conversation," commented the minister Tereza Cristina.
Currently, fresh Brazilian chicken meat is the main agricultural product exported to Kuwait. In 2018, 122,945 tonnes, worth $185.7 million, were shipped in this market. The Arab country also imports processed chicken, duck and turkey from Brazil, but in smaller volumes.
Last year, Brazil's agricultural exports to Kuwait totaled $209.4 million. Brazilian beef has a strong presence in the Middle East region with large exports directed to Saudi Arabia and UEA.
