The Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) has revealed to GlobalMeatNews that the weak flesh allegations made against Brazil were “misinterpreted” to consumers.

Speaking at SIAL in Paris, France, ABPA’s executive director Ricardo Santin talked about how Brazil was still battling against accusations of corruption and selling rotten meat, made against its biggest meat processors.  

The claims, which date back to March 2017, led to Brazilian authorities suspending 33 government officials, the closure of three slaughterhouses and several plants being placed under government inspection.

The move made international markets such as the European Union question Brazil’s food safety measures, and its visit to SIAL was to regain European consumers’ trust that its poultry was safe to eat.
