Brazilian Beef Exports Grow 18% in 2006. Close to US$ 3 Billion in Sales

Brazilian exports of cattle beef generated US$ 353 million in September, an increase of 30% when compared to the same period last year. The volume shipped reached 202,000 tons, an increase of 7.67% when compared to the same period in 2005.

These figures were disclosed this week by the Brazilian Beef Industry and Exporters Association (Abiec).

According to the organization, the figures show that the prices practiced by slaughterhouses are still on the rise, as revenues grew more than the quantities shipped. The main destinations for raw cattle beef in the month were Russia, Egypt, Holland, Iran, Italy, Algeria, Germany, the United Kingdom, Israel and Saudi Arabia.

In the case of the industrialized products, the main buyers were the United States, the United Kingdom, Holland, Cuba, Italy, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jamaica, Belgium, France and Iraq.

The association believes that the good performance came at a time when exports tend to lose strength due to Ramadan in the Muslim countries, when the faithful fast during the day, and because September is the period after school holidays in Europe, and in which companies have not yet started their purchases for end of year celebrations. "Even so, foreign exchange revenues were still at their average," according to the Abiec statement.

Between January and September, exports generated US$ 2.8 billion, presenting growth of 17.58% in comparison to the same period last year. The volume shipped reached 1.7 million tons, 3.57% more than in the first nine months of 2005.

In the accumulated result for the year, the main destinations for raw cattle beef were Russia, Egypt, Holland, Italy, the United Kingdom, Algeria, Germany, Bulgaria, Israel and Saudi Arabia.

In the case of industrialized cattle beef, the main buyers were the United States, the United Kingdom, Holland, Italy, Cuba, Germany, France, Belgium, Iraq, Puerto Rico, Japan, Ireland, the Emirates, Egypt and Sweden.
