Santo Domingo.– The Ministry of Agriculture has set up a new food safety program aimed at restoring meat exports in the near future.
During a recent meeting, Agriculture Minister Luis Ramon Rodriguez, Director General of Livestock Bolivar Toribio, and Animal Health Director Rafael Nunez agreed on a operational plan to reopen exports of beef, chicken, pork and eggs to the United States and other Caribbean markets.
