Uruguay grants market access for US poultry products

Uruguay has granted final approval for importing US fresh and frozen poultry and poultry products, including US fresh chicken, the USDA has announced.

Following several years of technical discussions, USDA representatives from APHIS and FSIS reached an agreement with Uruguay on the sanitary measures for US poultry products.

Access to Uruguay had been previously limited to US fresh and frozen turkey meat for a seasonal market and US cooked (processed) chicken meat.

US poultry exports to Uruguay were valued at $250,000 in 2013 (up from $130,000 in 2012), with potential to expand further under this new agreement.
