Italy kicking goals in Brazil

Italy kicking goals in brazil Rio de Janeiro, 1 July - Italy kicking goals in Brazil. The Azzurri may not have set the world on fire with their early exit from the World Cup in Brazil but at least Italy is kicking goals in the export market in Brazil.

Some of Italy’s famous Prosciutto, Salami, Pancetta and other pork derived cold cuts have won a new certificate of export health from Brazilian authorities as reported by the Italian industrial association of meat and sausages ASSICA. Northern regions such as Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto and Le Marche were allowed to export their finest local produce into the strong and growing Brazilian market. This good news come on the back of a momentous decision last June when a long standing 45 year ban was lifted allowing Italian cold cuts to gain access to the lucrative US market.

The ruling is a great win for Italy as exports to Brazil continue to rise having almost doubled in the past five years. The Azzurri may no longer be at the World Cup but it is nice to know that Italy will still be represented in Brazil by some of its famous produce.
