Halal: Brazil targets the Moroccan market


Brazil has announced the very imminent signing of trade agreements with several Muslim countries, including Morocco, to increase its exports of agricultural products to this vast market.

The aim is to access their markets and sell agricultural products other than corn, beef, chicken and raw sugar, Brazilian trade minister said at a business conference in Sao Paulo, Reuters reports.

Remarks reinforced by Flavio Bettarello, assistant secretary for trade at the ministry of agriculture, stressing that “there is a concern about the types of products exported and the destinations”.

Brazil, which already sends 50% of its exports to five Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) countries namely Turkey, Iran, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh, would like to expand its scope action for a greater share of the world food trade.

The world’s largest exporter and producer of halal meats, especially beef and chicken, which comply with Muslim dietary requirements, Brazil totaled $ 4.7 billion in sales of halal beef and chicken exports last year, according to official data.
