Mexican Beef Exports to Russia Increase

09 February 2012

MEXICO - The export of beef and horses from Mexico to Russia increased more than sevenfold, from 3,848 tons in 2010 to 28,541 in 2011, according to the National Health Service, Food Safety and Food Quality (SENASICA).

The expectation for 2012 is that sales of meat to Russia should continue to increase following Russia's approval of two further establishments in the states of Durango and Tamaulipas to export bovine products.

The Russian market was opened to Mexican producers in 2010. In 2011 the business was greatly intensified, as Mexico exported 24,604 tonnes of cattle meat and 3,937 of horses.

With the new authorisations, Mexico now has 17 establishments authorised to export meat to Russia.

It is important to note that this achievement is in recognition and trust with international health authorities in the inspection system that keeps SENASICA establishments certified Federal Inspection Type (TIF).

It should be noted that newly authorised facilities for export of cattle meat engage in slaughter, cutting and deboning of cattle.
