Speaking last week at two major events, Brazil's Minister of Agriculture & Food Supply Marcus Vinicius Pratini De Moraes stressed that the future is bright for Brazil in terms of meat and grain production. Brazil is set to become "the world's biggest producer and exporter of meat", said the minister during a luncheon speech to the Brazil-US Business Council, adding that the country will be re-classified as FMD-free within the next three months.
