The Canadian Minster of Agriculture and Agri-Food and Minister for the Canadian Wheat Board Chuck Strahl told just-food that re-entry into the Japanese market is a significant development for Canadian beef, revealing that the Canadian Government hopes to increase world trade by reassuring international markets of the safety of Canadian beef products.

“The Government of Canada is pleased that the Japanese delegation auditing Canada’s beef slaughter facilities, found eight plants to be fully compliant with Japanese trade requirements,” he said. “Regaining access to the Japanese market in December 2005 marked a significant milestone in Canada’s ongoing efforts to fully restore trade to pre-BSE levels.”

Building upon this momentum is an important foreign trade objective for the Canadian Government, he added.

“Canadian officials will continue to work closely with their counterparts in Japan and other international markets to demonstrate the scope and effectiveness of safeguards in place to protect human and animal health as the basis for expanded safe trade opportunities.”
