Brazil would tighten controls on fruit and vegetable imports

It will abolish automatic import permits for 10 perishable products. In an attempt to protect local producers, Brazil has announced it will suspend automatic import permits for 10 perishable products, including apples, raisins, wines, cheeses, potatoes and wheat flour.

Government sources told Reuters that while the measure will apply to all countries, it is primarily aimed at Argentina, one of the main suppliers of this type of product.

It should be noted that Brazil and Argentina have been involved in various trade conflicts in recent months.

With the suspension of automatic licenses, the entry of Argentine products into Brazil could take up to 60 days.

About three months ago, Argentina banned the entry of Brazilian pork, which meant a drop of about 80% in shipments.
