Still Bird Flu

Brazilian poultry exports dropped 12% in April in relation to the same month last year. External sales added up to US$ 229.1 million and 211,500 tons were shipped, which represented a reduction in 9.2% in comparison to the same period in 2005.

The information was disclosed yesterday, May 25, by the Brazilian Poultry Exporters Association (Abef).

According to the entity’s press advisory, the drop in exports is still reflex of the slow-down started in February, with the retraction of important consuming markets due to points of Asian flu in Asia, Europe and Africa.
