Brazil to build the largest pork plant in Latin America

A large, integrated pork processing unit is to be built in Brazil in 2023, according to official information released by the authorities in the state of Parana. This will be the largest processing plant in Latin America, covering a floor space of 147,000 square meters, with a total processing capacity of 15,000 pigs per day.
With the expanding scale of the pork industry in Brazil and its increasing number of plants as well, the pork production chain in Brazil will be further strengthened correspondingly with this investment estimated at $470 million, informs the local government.
According to official data, in the first 4 months of this year, Brazil's pork exports reached 311,000 tonnes, up 28% YoY. Among which, 178,000 tonnes were shipped to the Chinese mainland, increasing by 38% YoY. In addition, its pork exports to Hong Kong (36,000 tonnes), Chile (20,000 tonnes), Singapore (14,000 tonnes), and Uruguay (13,000 tonnes) were all beyond the 10,000 tonnes level in the same period last year.
