curafreshWILLEMSTAD - The Minister of Economic Development Steven Martina, the Minister of Public Health, Environment and Nature Suzanne Camelia-Römer, the Minister of Transport, Traffic and Spatial Planning Zita Jesus-Leito, the Minister of Social Development, Labor and Welfare Hensley Koeiman and the Minister of Finance Kenneth Gijsbertha have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on behalf of the Government of Curaçao with the company Curafresh.

The 5 ministries of worked together on this project which involves agriculture and cattle with the objective to export meat. This will be done by the company Curafresh.

The intention of the MoU is that the government will lease a piece of land to Curafresh for agricultural purposes. Curafrash will then import cows for breeding. The idea is that within 5 years there will be enough cattle to start producing meet for local consumption but also for export. Curafresh will focus on the European Union and the Middle East.

Currently, Curaçao does not comply with the international standards to export meat to other countries. That is why these Ministries will work together to focus on the necessary developments to comply with these international standards.

The government sees this collaboration as another step towards economic growth especially the aspect of exporting meat to other countries.
