NA61/SHINE is a fixed target experiment which uses secondary beams produced at the CERN SPS. Hadron-hadron interactions have been recorded at beam momenta between 13 and 350 GeV/c with a wide-acceptance spectrometer. Recent measurements released by the NA61/SHINE experiment are of significant importance for a precise prediction of the J-PARC neutrino beam used for the T2K experiment and for interpretation of EAS data. These measurements also provide a large amount of input for tuning of hadron production models in Monte-Carlo generators. The latest measurements of pion-carbon and proton-carbon interactions will be reviewed.
