Second year with downward turnover for Paraguayan beef

Paraguay ended 2019 with a turnover of $1,023 million for the beef exported, a decline of 5.9% compared to the year before. This is the second consecutive year with a downward turnover for the beef industry in Paraguay, according to data issued by the National Animal Quality Service (Senacsa).
The situation was created by a drop in both volumes exported and the value of the Paraguayan beef in the international market.

In 2019, 247,168 tonnes were exported for a total of $1,023 million ($4,138.5 per ton). While in 2018, 257,415 tonnes worth $1,087 million ($4,217.2) were sent to the markets and in 2017 258,232 tonnes for $1,102 million ($4,268) were placed. In the last decade, the most relevant billing was achieved in 2014 with a total income of $1,245 million, after exporting 268,940 tonnes ($4,629), also the largest record for the industry.
