Polish poultry import ban to Philippines urged to be overturned

The Polish government is urging the Department of Agriculture (DA) to fast-track the lifting of the temporary import ban on its poultry products, as well as the accreditation of more meat establishments to increase its meat items to the Philippines.

Polish Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Grzegorz Puda wrote to Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar concerning the Polish poultry processing plants’ export rights to the Philippines.

In his letter to Dar that was coursed through the Department of Foreign Affairs, Puda recognized the results of the bilateral talks between Poland and the Philippines that have resolved trade issues, particularly on meat products, between the two countries.

“The Polish and Philippine food safety authorities have been working intensively to grant export rights to Polish plants producing poultry meat [including mechanically separated meat] and poultry meat products destined for the Philippine market,” Puda said in his letter, dated September 30, a copy of which was obtained by the BusinessMirror.
