Average Poultry Exports From Brazil Grow

(MENAFN- Brazil-Arab News Agency (ANBA)) São Paulo – The monthly average of chicken shipments from Brazil are higher this year compared to 2023, indicating good year-end results, Brazilian meat lobby ABPA reported on Monday (8). Last year's monthly average exports were at 428,200. The monthly average year to date through June climbed to 431,400 tonnes.

In June alone, Brazilian raw and processed chicken exports slid, though, to 435,900 tonnes, 2.3% down from last year's June. Revenue stood at USD 793.6 million, down 10.6%.

First half's average outperformed 2023's

“June's slight year-on-year downturn in shipments isn't enough to compromise the good momentum experienced by chicken exports. The fact that the first half's average outperformed 2023's whole-year average, coupled with the second half of the year typically being the best period for exports, indicates good results for 2024,” said ABPA President Ricardo Santin in a statement.

In the first half of this year, poultry exports reached 2.588 million tonnes, down 1.6% from 2023's first half. Revenue stood at USD 4.636 billion, down 10.3% from a year ago.

Top destination China imported 276,100 tonnes in the first half, down 29% from the same period last year. Then came the United Arab Emirates at 240,100 tonnes (+20%), Japan at 214,200 tonnes (-3%) and Saudi Arabia at 206,000 (+17%). In his comment on exports, ABPA Market Director Luis Rua stressed the high demand for the Brazilian product from the Middle East.
