Brazilian duck meat exports grow 18.9% in 2023

Brazil’s duck meat exports grew 18.9% in 2023, compared to the previous year, totaling 3,507 tons. Revenue generated by shipments of the product rose 24.4%, to USD 13.7 million, according to data from the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA).

The president of the entity, Ricardo Santin, says the sector has invested in strengthening the international image of the product, which has high added value. “The growth of external sales is directly influenced by the sectoral strategy, which should continue to generate important foreign exchange revenues for Brazil,” he said.

The main destination for Brazilian duck meat was Saudi Arabia, which bought 986 tons in 2023, 2% below 2022. The United Arab Emirates imported 916 tons, an increase of 32%. Other highlights were Qatar (422 t, +38%), Mexico (266 t, +11%) and Japan (238 t, +54%).

“The strategy to raise international awareness of the Brazilian brand will remain strong in 2024, particularly at international fairs. This is especially true in the Middle East, which is our main market,” said ABPA’s director of Markets, Luis Rua.

In February, the association will hold duck shawarma tastings and product promotion actions during Gulfood, the largest food fair in the Middle East, to be held in Dubai between February 19 and 23.

Garra International, which offers its clients Brazilian duck in its own brand, will be present at the fair. The company will be located in Hall 3, stand 324.
