Pork exports fall 25% in April and 9% in the year

Brazil's pork exports fell by 25% in April compared with the same month in 2012. Brazil shipped 35,618 tons of the products. Revenue fell by 20.86%, to US$ 99 million last month.
According to the Brazilian Association of Pork Producers and Exporters (ABIPECS), the poor performance is down to the closure of the Ukrainian market. The only reason the fall in revenues was not greater was because of the recovery of average selling prices. The average international price of pork rose by 6.06% in April on April 2012, to US$ 2,782.
For the year, pork exports totaled 156,035 tons, down by 9% on January-April 2012. Revenue in the period, in turn, was US$ 417.36 million, down by 5.27% on the first quarter of last year. Rui Vargas, president of ABIPECS, says the outlook for the second half is for recovery, both in volume and in revenue.
