CORRECTED-(OFFICIAL)-Brazil's BRF expects China soon to issue new meat export permits

(Corrects number of plants expected to receive permits to three, from four, following company’s clarification)

SAO PAULO, July 18 (Reuters) - Brazilian food processor BRF SA BRFS3.SA expects China to issue new export permits to three of its plants soon, a move that would help the company boost pork and chicken sales to the Asian nation by 30%, Lorival Luz, chief executive officer, told Reuters in an interview Thursday.

A Chinese delegation is visiting several Brazilian meat plants this week and will continue inspecting plants next week, he said. Luz declined to speculate about the timing for a Chinese decision on issuing the new permits, which may also benefit certain of its chicken processing units.
