Brazil is set for record pork exports in 2020

Brazilian pork exports increased 33% in September compared to the same period last year, totalling 86,500 tonnes of fresh and processed products, according to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA). As a result, shipments for the first nine months of 2020 have already exceeded the total accumulated in 2019 - 764.9 thousand tonnes against 750 thousand tonnes last year.
“We have good expectations for maintaining this pace over the next few months. The indications strengthen ABPA's forecasts of reaching a number close to 1 million tonnes exported in 2020," declared Ricardo Santin, President of ABPA. In revenue, exports generated $ 188.5 million in September, a figure 34% higher than the same month last year. In the accumulated result for the year, the partial results of 2020 also surpass those of the entire 2019 - $ 1.677 billion this year, against $ 1.577 billion in the previous year, according to Reuters.
Mainland China remains the main market for Brazilian pork, with 376,700 tonnes imported this year (+133%). Also, Hong Kong accounted for 131,600 tonnes of pork imported from Brazil.
