Brazil’s pork exports (including all products from fresh to processed) reached 135,900 tonnes in the 1st 2 months of 2020. That means a 32.4% year-on-year growth.
Due to new price levels (23.9% higher), the sales for that period generated a revenue of US$ 319.1 million, which is 66.2% higher than that recorded in the 1st 2 months of 2019, with US$ 192 million.
Ricardo Santin, executive director of the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), said, “The average export price remains high, pressured by a strong Asian demand for animal protein. The impacts of African Swine Fever in markets such as China and Vietnam kept shipments high, at levels a-typical for the period.”
