ABCS: Brazilian pig farming no longer dependent on Russia

The president of the Brazilian Association of Pig Farmers (ABCS), Marcelo Lopez, says Brazil is no longer dependent on Russia. In an interview with Estúdio Rural on Canal Rural, Lopez said that the industry has found alternatives to reverse its losses caused by the Russian embargo.

"The embargo had a negative impact, but we looked for other markets. We opened up China and Hong Kong, which look good for 2012. Hong Kong has exceeded our expectations," said Lopez.

Lopez also celebrated the opening of the US market, known for being very demanding, and the rapprochement with Japan after the country’s missions to southern Brazil. Exports are expected to begin at any time to Japan. The U.S. example validates the excellence and health in Brazil and proves that the country is able to meet any market.
