Brazil: Average chicken meat exports indicate positive result for 2024

In the monthly survey, chicken meat exports in June totaled 435.9 thousand tons, 2.3% lower than the 446.2 thousand tons shipped in the same period last year. Revenue obtained in the period reached US$ 793.6 million, 10.6% lower than the total recorded in June 2023, with US$ 887.5 million.

In the analysis of the semester, chicken meat exports totaled 2,588 million tons so far, a figure 1.6% lower than the total recorded in the first six months of 2023, with 2,629 million tons. The accumulated revenue in the period reached US$4,636 billion, a balance 10.3% lower than that accumulated in the previous year, with US$5,168 billion.

"The slightly negative fluctuation in comparative shipments in June is not enough to compromise the positive momentum experienced by chicken meat exports. The fact that the average for the first half of the year exceeds the general average for 2023, combined with the fact that the second half of the year is traditionally the best period for exports, point to new positive results for the year 2024", highlights the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.

According to the survey, China, the main export destination, imported 276.1 thousand tons in the first half of the year, a figure 29% lower than the total recorded in the same period last year. Next are the United Arab Emirates, with 240.1 thousand tons (+20%), Japan, with 214.2 thousand tons (-3%) and Saudi Arabia, with 206 thousand tons (+17%).

In the survey by state, Paraná remains the main exporter, with 1,076 million tons exported in the first half of this year, a number 1.1% lower than that recorded in 2023. Next are Santa Catarina, with 563.6 thousand tons (+3.4%) , Rio Grande do Sul, with 354.3 thousand tons (-4.74%), São Paulo, with 136.9 thousand tons (-9.4%) and Goiás, with 125.7 thousand tons (+4.6%).

"It is worth highlighting the positive increase in volumes destined for Latin American countries in recent months, at a time when Brazil's main competitor in the international market, the United States, has seen a significant reduction in its exports. This has allowed Brazil to replace itself in strategic markets for products such as chicken legs and breasts, helping to ensure food security for its trading partners. In turn, Middle Eastern countries maintain a high demand for Brazilian products", commented ABPA's market director, Luis Rua.
