Brazil gains market share in meat exports

Brazil has established itself as a leading meat exporter, and the scenario for this year remains positive. After the global financial crisis in 2008 and Europe’s restrictions, exporters sought out new markets that are now gaining in importance.

Emerging economies are already the largest buyers in volume terms. In revenue terms, for chicken, Europe and Japan still stand out for paying the highest prices. The strategy of putting more and more added value products on the market has also taken off, bringing in more revenue. For these reasons, Antonio Jorge Camardelli, the president of the Brazilian Meat Exporters Association (Abiec), believes that, in beef exports alone, Brazil will earn US$ 6 billion this year.

Pedro de Camargo Neto, president of the Brazilian Association of Pork Producers and Exporting (Abipecs), also forecasts better performance in 2012, but mentions no numbers. He says that the reopening of the Russian market, which had accounted for half of exports and is now at 25%, and an increasing number of slaughterhouses licensed to sell to China, will ensure gains.
