Ag groups affirm confidence in the food safety system

The Brazilian Beef Exporters Association (ABIEC) issued an official statement affirming its support and confidence in the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA) and in the work of the Federal Inspection Service (SIF). ABIEC notes that its more than 29 member-companies adhere to the strictest international rules and standards. The Brazilian National Confederation of Agriculture (CNA) also released a statement on their website. CNA calls the actions of those accused in the operation as lamentable and hopes for the proper punishment to be carried out to the appropriate actors in such a scheme.
