Paraná poultry farming growing rapidly

The poultry market in Paraná is growing at rates similar to those seen in the Chinese economy, one of the fastest-growing economies in the world – at nearly 10% per year. Last year, production in the sector grew 4.7% on 2010, according to data from the Paraná State Poultry Product Industry Association (Sindiavipar). Revenue was US$ 2.05 billion - 20% more than in the previous year. New investments are being made to try to maintain this growth over the next three years.

Paraná is the largest producer and exporter of poultry meat in Brazil. In 2011, total slaughter was about 116 million head a month, accounting for 30% of Brazilian production. In the first quarter of this year, the average was 120 million head of chicken a month.

The outlook for growth is ‘fantastic and viable,’ says the president of Sindiavipar, Domingos Martins. He attributes the results to the investment policy in the sector. It is estimated that this year alone R$ 250 million will be invested in new units and expansion.
