Exports of meat to the European Union; a start

AmicorpWILLEMSTAD - The Ministry of Economic Development in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, Environment and Nature will hold a lecture on meat exports to the European Union.

Worldwide, the consumption of meat (beef, pork and chicken) increases steadily. Beef is the most consumed type of meat. Of the total production of 260 million kg of meat, 28 million kilograms, worth about 98 billion USD¹ is annually exported by producing countries. The export process is complex; the rules must be agreed upon, trade agreements ratified and it must comply with sanitary requirements.

Can the Curaçao hub function between South America and the EU mean something for the meat trade between the two continents?

Keynote speaker at this lecture is Mrs. Dr. Christianne Bruschke, chief veterinary officer at the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation in the Netherlands.

Mrs. Bruschke is the expert regarding the trade of products of animal origin. During this lecture, she will explain the possibilities for transporting meat to the European Union.

Anyone who is interested in this topic is welcome to attend this lecture. The lecture takes place from 15:00 to 17:00 at Amaziah (Amicorp building) on Monday, August 22, 2016. There is no charge for participating in this lecture. Since there is limited space, registration is mandatory. Register via
