The consequence is that we have started winning the price championship, as we have been the leaders in terms of volume since 2003," stated Abiec president Marcus Vinicius Pratini de Moraes, according to a statement disclosed by the organization.

According to the association, one of the main marketing activities developed by the sector are promotional barbecues in buyer countries. The Arab world has been a constant target for this program.
