8 new meat plants receive approval to export to China

Brazil received approval for export to China for 5 pork processing units and 3 chicken slaughterhouses increasing the total to 16 plants authorized to export pork to the Chinese market, and 46 plants for chicken meat shipments, informs ABPA. "The news of the new qualifications sets the tone for the partnership that China and Brazil are building for food security and the expansion of the trade agenda. Already consolidated as the main external chicken supplier to China, Brazil must now expand its participation, also, in pork sales," said Francisco Turra, president of ABPA.
Since January of this year, China has taken the lead among Brazil's main poultry and swine export destinations. Between January and October, the Asian country imported more than 166,000 tonnes of pork (+ 40% over the same period last year), generating revenues of $429.8 million (+ 66%). Chicken meat was 402,000 tons (+ 22%), worth $931.7 million (+ 38%). In all, 31.4% of pork and 13.3% of chicken exported by Brazil in 2019 were shipped to China.
