Before Banning Brazil’s Beef, Russia Was Biggest Client

Exports of Brazilian beef in natura to Russia from January to September of this year totaled US$ 406.1 million, an increase of 141% over the same period last year. That makes Russia the biggest importer of raw beef from Brazil.
For the sake of comparison, Russia imports twice what the second biggest importer does – Egypt, with US$ 205 million. Other big importers: Holland with US$ 154.9 million, followed by the United Kingdom (US$ 153.8 million), Chile (US$ 136.6 million) and Italy (US$ 121.3 million).

Total exports for the period of raw beef reached US$ 1.93 billion, up 34% over January to September 2004. Prices of beef on international markets have risen 2.4% this year.

Russia and dozens of other countries throughout have now banned the import of Brazilian beef after it was discovered an outbreak of foot and mouth disease in a farm in the southwestern Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul.

With regard to canned (industrialized) beef products, exports totaled almost US$ 430 million, up 20.7% over the same period last year.

The biggest importer is the United States with US$ 125.5 million, followed by the United Kingdom with US$ 101.3 million (up 7% over last year) and Venezuela with US$ 34.2 million (up 210%). Prices of canned beef products have fallen 5.7% on international markets this year.

    Yesss…..
    …your biggest beef buyer but also your biggest (64 %) pork buyer. So eventually your pork…will also be banned..as it is with a few countries…already !!!!!

    2 weeks ago you threatened Russia to vote against their entry in the WTO….should they stop buying your pork !!!!!

    So now….you will probably have to find another basis…..to vote in their favor/disfavor for their entry in WTO !!!!!

    Bad luck !!!!!

    Smile…..
