Russia has succeeded in exporting its chicken meat to the Philippines.According to published information, the first shipment exported by Russia to this country was only 27 tons.
The export comes amid a dispute between Brazil and the Philippines over the possible contamination of Brazilian-made chicken meat with COVID-19, which is likely to be pursued through the World Trade Organization.
Some experts believe that the Philippines’ announcement of the possibility of contamination of chicken meat produced in Brazil is due to the country’s efforts to replace the imports it needs with other countries.
According to the agreement reached between the Philippines and Russia, only 4 Russian companies have succeeded in obtaining a license to export poultry products to this country.
During 2019, the Philippines imported more than 340,000 tons of animal protein products worth more than $ 327 million.
According to the published information, the largest exporters of poultry products to this country in 2019 were the United States, the Netherlands, Brazil, Canada, Belgium, Poland, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Turkey, respectively.
It should be noted that in recent years, with the improvement of the welfare of Filipinos, the consumption of animal protein in this country has increased and the government is trying to meet part of the needs of its citizens through producers in other countries.
