Paraguayit is indicated that: "the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (ACIA, according to its French acronym) has issued a final report on the initial 2022 on-site audit of Paraguay's beef inspection system and animal health controls..."

The President of SENACSA, Dr. José Carlos MartinIn interviews with the Paraguayan media, he said that the approval of sanitary certificates takes three to four months, so it is estimated that the official opening of the Canadian market will take place between September and October.

Beef market

For its part, the Rural Association of Paraguay (ARP) indicated that this was an important step forward with a view to exporting to other countries such as the United States and Mexico.
