Brazilian exports of halal products to the UAE to grow 10% in 2024

Exports of halal-certified products from Latin America to the United Arab Emirates are expected to increase by 15% in 2024, according to the World Logistics Passport (WLP), a platform created by the Dubai government to encourage global trade. Considering only shipments from Brazil, the expectation is of a 10% increase.

According to the WLP General Manager, Mahmood Al Bastaki, Brazil is first among the Latin American suppliers. The country also may benefit indirectly from the positive outlook for the continent, given that many Brazilian companies exporting to the Arab market are in neighboring countries, such as Argentina, Uruguay, and others.

“The commercial relationship between the two countries is very positive. The Arabs are loyal customers of Brazilian products because they know there is safety in terms of sanitary conditions and in relation to halal certification,” says Mahmood Al Bastaki.

In addition to poultry and beef, which lead the Brazilian export agenda to the United Arab Emirates, the WLP also intends to diversify and develop new trade routes for coffee, cocoa, and fruits.

Data from the Brazilian government indicate that the country shipped USD 1.87 billion in agricultural products to the Emirates between January and October this year — almost stable when compared to the total registered during the same period of 2022, USD 1.9 billion. Poultry shipments totaled USD 742.9 million in the period, a decrease of 7.57%.
