ABPA: Russian quota is an opportunity for chicken exporters

According to the decree, quotas are established divided into 250 thousand tons of carcasses, legs and boneless cuts and 100 thousand of boneless products, in addition to 14 thousand tons destined for whole turkey and carcasses. For products imported outside of quotas, the import tariff is 65%.

"Sales of chicken meat from Brazil to the Eurasian market registered strong expansion throughout 2023, and this partnership is expected to expand", advises ABPA’s markets director, Luís Rua.

The world leader in chicken meat exports, Brazil is also the main international supplier of this protein to the Russian market. Between January and November, the Eastern European country imported 43.6 thousand tons of Brazilian poultry product, a volume 44.2% higher than imports in 2022. These exports generated revenue of US$81.2 million this year, according to data collected by ABPA. The country is the 24th main destination for Brazilian products.

"We have a long tradition with the Russian market in a multi-protein relationship, which should gain even more strength next year, reinforcing the upward trend already recorded over the last two years", highlights the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.
