UAE stops import of Brazilian meat

New restrictions on the import of Brazilian meat will have major impact on the UAE food industry, as meat from the country is sold by UAE's leading supermarkets and a primary ingredient on restaurant menus. Recently, the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MoCCAE) has taken precautionary measures on imported food products from Brazil. Brazilian authorities suspended activities of 21 companies for indulging in unhealthy practices in their production processes.

"Only six Brazilian plants are mentioned in the ban, not all Brazilian products. There is enough stock in the market and if there is no problem in the international market, the UAE will not be affected," said Isahaq Kattupurathu, MD, Siam Trading, a meat and food distributor.
