Panama: Proposal to Classify Bovine Meat

A bill has been submitted to the Assembly to create a compulsory system of classification of carcasses and nomenclature of beef cuts.

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

The bill, which was presented by the Minister of Agricultural Development (Mida), seeks to create beef cuts, in addition to protecting and guaranteeing information on beef cuts purchased by consumers, the Assembly reported.

Gerardo González, president of the National Association of Cattlemen (Anagan), explained to Panamaamerica.com.pa that "... the sector needs to have a system for classifying meat for sale, because Panama has lagged behind other countries."

González added that "... In the livestock sector, we intend to make important investments and to have a classification of meat is very valuable for producers."

The initiative, which must be approved by the National Assembly, takes up the legislation that was repealed in 2013 to return to the classification of meat, which will help producers to market their products on the international market and invest in quality, the Panamanian government reported weeks ago.

Beef: Export Alternatives to the U.S.

Because Panama lacks the certifications required by the U.S. country, authorities of that country are analyzing the possibility of exporting through certification in a laboratory in Honduras.

Monday, February 17, 2020

According to the authorities of the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA), the U.S. authorities agree that Panama should certify the quality of the meat through analysis by Honduran laboratories.

Press.com reviews that "... The logistic terms for the shipment and reception of the samples, which would be assumed by the exporters, are about to be defined. Augusto Valderrama, Minister of Agricultural Development, reported that U.S. authorities authorized a reference laboratory in Honduras to perform the required analyses for meat exports to that country."

Valderrama added that "... it will not be long before MIDA laboratories finally have the equipment and reagents needed to meet U.S. requirements." In the meantime, they will have to certify the quality of the product abroad."

The United States has blocked the entry of Panamanian beef for more than 37 years because of the lack of guarantees for its phytosanitary standards.
