Brazilian bovine meat exports have produced a revenue of US$ 1.555 billion between January and August this year, against US$ 875.3 million during the same period last year, which represents a 77.75% increase.

According to the president of the Brazilian Beef Industry and Exporters Association (Abiec), Marcus Viní­cius Pratini de Moraes, Brazil should export the equivalent to US$ 2.3 billion until the end of the year.


“We have the capacity to increase a lot our production, there are no limits,” stated Pratini.


He added that Abiec will invest on marketing for the Brazilian bovine meat. Already as part of that effort, there will be the participation in two international fairs: World Food Moscow, in Russia and Sial Paris, in France, which will take place in October.


During the event in Paris, the barbecue parlour Barbacoa will serve a traditional Brazilian barbecue to the visitors.
