Brazilian chicken meat exports end 2022 with a record

Revenue in dollars obtained from exports reached US$ 9.762 billion - another unprecedented result -, a performance 27.4% higher than the result achieved in 2021, with US$ 7.663 billion.

Considering only the month of December, chicken meat exports reached 386.3 thousand tons, a volume 6% lower than that registered in the last month of 2021, with 411 thousand tons.

On the other hand, there was a 9.2% increase in revenue from chicken meat exports in December, reaching US$ 785.2 million, against US$ 718.9 million in the same period of 2021.

Among the main export destinations, China continued to be the main one, with 540.5 thousand tons imported between January and December 2022, a volume 15.6% lower than that registered in 2021, with 640.4 thousand tons. In second place, the United Arab Emirates imported 444.9 thousand tons last year, surpassing the total shipped in the previous year by 14.2%. Other highlights were the Philippines, with 246.3 thousand tons (+46.5%), the European Union, with 237.9 thousand tons (+22.8%) and South Korea, with 185.4 thousand tons (+62 .9%).

"The reconfiguration of the international animal protein market, marked by the effects of the conflict in Eastern Europe, the increase in production costs in the European Union and the health situation of poultry farming in the five continents, is among the determining factors for the records registered in the year that closed. In this context, Brazil, which has never registered cases and is free of Avian Influenza, has remained a safe haven for the global supply of chicken meat and should sustain the same levels of exports in 2023", analyzes the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.
