Brazilian meat exports are rising on high demand from Asia

According to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), the volume of meat exported in the first 7 months of the year has increased constantly and the trend is to persist, considering the demand from Asian countries affected by ASF.
Poultry and pork are the most successful products exported by Brazilian producers to Asia, especially in the Chinese market, explained Francisco Turra, ABPA chairman. In fact, at this time, China accounts for 28.2% of Brazilian pork exports and 13% of chicken.
Until the end of July, Brazilian poultry exports have increased by 5.8% compared to the same period of 2018 to reach 2.34 million tonnes worth $4 billion, up by 10.8%.
Pork exports have reached a volume of 414,400 tonnes so far, up by 19.6% y-o-y. The recent increase in exports has been influenced by the drop in the Chinese pig herd, the world's largest, and by the trend of switching from pork to poultry seen in several Asian markets such as China, Vietnam, Japan.
