Brazil on the Verge of Becoming World’s Largest Food Supplier

The Brazilian food industry is doing well. As well as the country currently being one of the greatest consuming markets in the world, Brazil has the potential to increase productivity and grow even more in the foreign market.

“We will be the world’s barn,” stated the president of the Brazilian National Union of the Animal Feed Industry (Sindirações), Mário Sergio Cutait, who is participating at the international congress on food security, Global Feed & Food, in São Paulo.


The importance of agribusiness in Brazil was one of the reasons why the country was chosen by the United Nations (UN) Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to host the first edition of the event, that started today, July 11, at the Research Institute at the Hospital Sí­rio-Libanês, the Syrian-Lebanese hospital in São Paulo.


According to information from FAO, it is estimated that today there are about 6 billion people in the world, but in 2050 there will be 9 billion.


According to Cutait, Brazil may supply the larger part of the food demand created with the population growth.


“We may increase our production. We have earth, water, sun the whole year long and we are a country that doesn’t have agriculture subsidies. We may supply good part of national and world needs at competitive prices,” said the Sindirações president.


According to him, Brazil is a very flexible country and may meet the demands by the foreign market and keep costs low.


“That is what other countries cannot do and so start placing barriers on our products,” he said.


Cutait stated also that the quality of Brazilian products exported is the same as that sold in the internal market and that the greatest regulators of Brazilian products are the demands made by the importers themselves.


One example of this is that Brazil is leader in bovine beef exports. Last year the country exported to 140 countries.
