USSEC Participates in the XVI International Pork Congress and Show in Peru

USSEC recently participated in the XVI International Pork Congress and Show in Peru, organized by the Peruvian Swine Producers Association.  USSEC consultant Julio Chaves spoke to attendees on the importance of improving harvest floors under Peru’s new regulations.  Because the regulations have recently changed, the pork industry will need to strengthen its efforts to comply with the new regulations to continue its relevance in the international pork market.  Mr. Chaves gave a second lecture on methods of producing quality pork.

Mr. Chaves was also invited to visit the largest swine harvest plant in Peru to provide technical assistance on topics related to fulfilling the new Peruvian regulations.  He inspected a plant and provided recommendations to improve the plant’s production processes.  Pork producers in Peru will continue to require additional USSEC assistance in order to face new commerce threats, which will be reflected in an increase of U.S. soybean meal consumption.
