Revenue from Brazilian chicken meat exports has increased 29.3% in 2022 until October, when compared to the same period last year, reaching USD 8.2 billion. The growth was linked to a rise in product prices, according to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA).
From January to October, the total volume of Brazilian chicken meat exports rose 5.1% year-on-year, to 4.1 million tons.
Among the main export destinations in the year, the highlights were sales to the United Arab Emirates, reaching 377.3 thousand tons (+22.9%), the Philippines, with 215 thousand tons (+45.6%), the European Union, with 202.1 thousand tons (+23.8%) and South Korea, with 153.3 thousand tons (+63.2%).
Considering only the month of October, there was a 15% increase in revenues with poultry exports, to USD 822.6 million. The volume had a slight decrease last month, with shipments reaching 394 thousand tons of chicken meat, considering all fresh and processed products – 0.8% less than the same month last year.
However, according to ABPA’s president, Ricardo Santin, the monthly average of chicken meat exports remains above 400 thousand tons, in line with the associations’ projections for the year.
