Brasilia and Washington have taken the latest technical steps to open the US market to Brazilian beef, which if all runs smoothly together with a 60 to 90 days public consultation period could see the first shipments in the second quarter of next year. Currently because of sanitary barriers linked to Foot and Mouth Disease, FMD, Brazil can only export industrialized beef to the US. Read full article

Only one problem: Brazil's beef is not priced competitively enough to compete properly in the USA, especially when one considers the questionable quality and origins of said meat(i.e. was this meat raised on land that was formerly rain forest? Was it land that was stolen from smaller lad owners that were killed by bigger land owners, etc.)Dec 20th, 2013 - 09:08 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Yes, because those are issues that really preoccupies the US population...Dec 20th, 2013 - 09:57 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Don't be silly, the only competition Brasil has in the land of the worm meat, is the farm bills...
Actually what preoccupies the PC American people in regards to food is to buy local and organic. Something you would not know, considering your pre-occupation with distortion of truths piss hunter.Dec 20th, 2013 - 12:52 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

You can already buy Beef from Brazil here, and it's grass fed beef, include from Uruguay. Organic (the old fashioned way) is pricy/expensive, but it's superior, it's in high demand because people here don't trust the gmo corn fed beef from the US and Canada for a good reason. This means more and better quality on the US market what is simply in demand, people want more organic food.Dec 20th, 2013 - 03:37 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
garss fed...yeah, partially, but what percentage of its final weight is put on through grain?Dec 20th, 2013 - 04:27 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
Brazilian beef in Brazil is markedly more expensive than US beef in the US, so I repeat, the cost of Brazilian products make them unable to compete well globally, and near impossibly within the USA.
That's because of the US farm bills, Mastershake, an obvious reason NOT to sign any agreement with USA...Dec 20th, 2013 - 04:45 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

In 2014, Brasil will import a third of the petrol imported 2013. If we imported for 60B in 2013, we'll import for 20B in 2014, with the operational start of P-55, P-56, P-68, and 9 platforms that will produce those two thirds that we need.Dec 20th, 2013 - 06:44 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
It's like there is a surplus is 40B dollars in our budget. If we add the investments from the international community, we can assure that Brasil is a country for present days.
