Peru and Colombia open beef market

The governments of Peru and Colombia have agreed to end restrictions on U.S. beef imports.

They will now allow the importation of all U.S. beef and beef products – including those derived from animals of all ages – into their countries.

The agreements take effect on Oct. 25, 2006, for exports to Peru and on Oct. 31, 2006, for exports to Colombia. The U.S. Congress must ratify both agreements before being finalized.

Plants will be eligible to export once the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issues new certification requirements.
