Algeria opens market for halal chicken meat from Brazil

A country with 44 million inhabitants, Algeria was a market closed to chicken meat imports until now. Annually, the country produces 340 thousand tons of chicken meat, which establishes a per capita consumption of around 7 kilos annually.

"We will focus our strategy on complementing local demand for products. Brazil has solid know-how in Halal chicken meat exports and will be able to meet the demands of this market", exalts the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.

In addition to being the world leader in exports in the sector, Brazil is the world's largest exporter of halal chicken meat. Annually, around 2 million tons are shipped, especially to nations in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and even to Muslim consumers in Europe.

"It's a window of opportunity for Brazilian exporters and we should even carry out a promotional action next week in Algeria", says ABPA's markets director, Luís Rua.
