Asia to replace Russian demand for Brazilian pork

Russia’s embargo on Brazilian meats in 2011means the pork industry is diversifying destinations this year, and Asia is the biggest hope. "If we add sales together the sale to China and Hong Kong now, the volume exceeds that to Russia," said the president of the Brazilian Association of Pork Producers and Exporters (Abipecs), Pedro de Camargo Neto.

In 2012 Hong Kong will have an even greater role to play, and exports to the region will overtake those to Russia in 2012, says the executive. There is great hope for China. Three plants - Brasil Foods, Marfrig, and Aurora - can now export directly to the country. The Marfrig unit was the first to export in November. Another thirteen units are waiting for the Ministry of Agriculture carry out its first selection so that they can request authorization from the Chinese authorities. Five others have been inspected and are awaiting authorization to export to China.
