Brazil: Duck meat shipments grow 18.9 percent in 2023

Revenue generated by exports in the 12 months of 2023 reached US$ 13.7 million, a performance 24.4% higher than the US$ 11 million obtained in the previous year.

"The sector has invested in strengthening its international image through actions through the Brazilian Duck sector brand. The growth in foreign sales of this segment of high added value and premium products has a direct influence on the sectoral strategy, which should continue to generate important foreign exchange revenues for Brazil", assesses the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin. 

The largest importer of Brazilian products, Saudi Arabia was the destination of 986 tons in 2023, a volume 2% lower than in 2022. On the other hand, the United Arab Emirates imported 916 tons, a number 32% higher, according to the same comparative period. Other highlights were Qatar, with 422 tons (+38%), Mexico, with 266 tons (+11%) and Japan, with 238 tons (+54%). 

"The Brazilian brand’s international diffusion strategy will remain strong in 2024, especially in actions at international fairs. This, especially in the Middle East, which is our main market. In February, we will hold duck shawarma (typical Arabic sandwich) tastings and promote our image during Gulfood, the largest food fair in the Middle East", explained Luís Rua, markets director at ABPA.
