Brazil Pork Exports Grow 56% to Over US$ 1 Billion

From January to November of this year, compared to the same period last year, pork export revenue in Brazil jumped 56.5%, reaching US$ 1.087 billion.

In terms of volume, pork exports are up 25%, reaching 580,956 tons. The information is from the pork trade association (Associação Brasileira das Indústrias Produtoras e Exportadoras de Carnes Suí­nas) (Abipecs).

Pedro de Camargo Neto, the Abipecs president, reports that in November there was a drop in exports of pork because of a strike by Brazilian customs officials.

Thus, whereas in October over 65,000 tons were exported, in November that fell to 42,000 tons, and revenue dropped from US$ 122 million to US$ 77 million.

Even so, it has been a very good year for the sector, says Camargo Neto. For the twelve-month period ending in August, for the first time ever, the sector had exports worth US$ 1 billion.

And there was a 25.3% rise in pork prices on international markets, bringing the price per ton to US$ 1,872.
