The Brazilian Agriculture Ministry said on Wednesday that Russia would lift its embargo on shipments of beef, poultry and pork from three Brazilian states.

Russia is one of Brazil's largest markets for meat exports, and meatpackers such as JBS, BRF Brasil Foods , Marfrig and other local animal protein processors stand to benefit from the reopening of that market.
