Whole chicken is still driving up export revenue

The volume of chicken exported in the first quarter of 2013 was down on the same period in2012.Cuts, whose exports fell by nearly 10%, were one of the main reasons for the decline. The products accounted for 52% of exports in the period. The total volume of exports fell by 4.94%.
Despite the drop, the reduction in volume was fully offset by a near-general increase in the average price of exports (only salted meat prices fell). The rises were led by whole chicken, whose average price in the quarter increased by nearly 20% on a year earlier. Cuts came next, up by 9.85%.
With this performance, whole chicken alone drove export revenue in the period, which increased by 6.06% in the quarter. At the same time, whole chicken's share of overall export revenue was up significantly, rising from 31.4% to over 36%. The share made up by cuts fell from 55% to 51.5% of the total.
