Indian market opens to US poultry
It said the first import permits for frozen US poultry and breeding stock were issued for Globex International, and its air freight shipment will soon be on its way.
It added that other shipments from other companies were in various stages of progress.
USAPEEC stressed the importance of India, being a huge market with 1.3 billion consumers and a middle-class population of 267 million as of 2016.
Prior to the opening of the market, India sent a government audit team to the US, where it received an overview of how the US federal government and individual states work together to assure that poultry is safe and wholesome.
The Indian delegation visited five states and toured breeding, slaughter, laboratory and government facilities.
