BRF want to remain among the top five exporters

The crisis that has hit the world’s major economies has worried Brasil Foods (BRF) as regards export volumes this year. However, the opening of major markets to Brazilian meat may make up for any negative impact on exports for the company. "The goal for this year is to remain among the five largest Brazilian exporters, and I believe that, even with the crisis, this scenario will not change," says Vice President of Corporate Affairs at BRF, Wilson Mello Neto.

According to Mello Neto, the impact of the crisis cannot yet be measured because January is an atypical month, when demand is weaker. The executive mentioned the reversal of the Russian embargo, which has been in force since June 15, the potential demand from China for chicken and pork, the start of exports to the United States and a possible opening of the Japanese and South Korean markets for pork. In 2011, BRF consolidated its position as the largest Brazilian meat exporter.
