Brazil’s Food Company Perdigí£o Grows at Home But Shrinks Overseas

Perdigão, one of Brazil’s largest food companies, had an increase in 17% in the volume of meats sold in the internal market and of 9.5% in the gross revenues for the second quarter of the year in relation to the same period in 2005.

Internal sales added up to US$ 371.1 million in current exchange rates, boosted up mainly by revenues with in natura products and the production of dairy products.

The participation of exports in the company’s revenues dropped, registering a reduction in 1.3% in volume and 21.3% in revenues, against the second quarter of 2005.

This can be explained by the international scenario, with the slow down in demand for poultry due to the avian influenza and the Russian embargo to Brazilian pork due to foot and mouth disease.

In the quarter, consolidated gross revenues were of US$ 648.5 million, value 6% smaller in comparison to the same period last year. Expectations for the next few months are positive, since the European and Arab markets are gradually retaking their traditional purchase volumes.
