In Brazil, the states of Parana and Sao Paulo - both important farming centres - received authorisation for export of de-boned and matured beef, two years after they were barred, reported the Guardian newspaper. Ranchers in Paraguay gained clearance for exports of the same products, the statement said.

In January, the European Union suspended all beef imports from Brazil, citing food safety concerns about the meat's lack of traceability. The EU eased those restrictions in February but has still been allowing beef shipments only from 106 Brazilian farms.
