On Tuesday a group of Russian experts is to start inspecting slaughter-houses and poultry farms in Brazil which supply meat products to Russia, a representative of Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture said in San Paolo. According to his information, the mission will last till the end of July. The Russian experts will begin working in Brazil's southernmost state, Rio Grande do Sul, which is the principal supplier of beef and pork to Russia. They must inspect about 200 enterprises all over Brazil, which currently have licenses of the Russian veterinary supervision service for supplying meat products. As is known, on April 15 Russia's Agriculture Ministry abolished the temporary embargo on meat supplies from most Brazilian states, which had been imposed last September because of the outburst of foot-and-mouth disease in Para and Amazonas states. The embargo on meat supplies from these states persists. Russia is an important market for Brazil to sell its meat products. In 2004 Brazil held the leading place among the beef and pork suppliers to Russia. Its share in the Russian import of beef made up 35%, and of pork - 74%. Brazil held second place among the suppliers of poultry meat to Russia after the USA (26% and 60% respectively). According to the data of Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture, last year the export of meat and meat products to Russia reached $867 million, which made up 14% of Brazil's total export of meat last year. The export of natural beef amounted to $239 million, of pork - $441 million, and of poultry meat - $159 million. Despite the imposed embargo, in 2004 the meat products supplies from Brazil to Russia reached an all-time high of 288,000 tons of pork
