Meat export revenue in first four months up by almost 10%
Chicken meat exports are down significantly in volume, but revenue is strong, while beef remains cheaper than in the same period in 2012, but volume is surprisingly up. Both meats saw revenue increase in the period - chicken by 6.73%, and beef by 21%.
Pork and turkey’s performances were not so good. The former also saw prices improve, but as volume was down by close to 9%, revenue fell by 5.12%. Turkey saw volume and price fall (processed meat saw a slight improvement) and revenue also fell by more than 8%. As these two meats are less important than chicken (47% of total meat export revenue) and beef (37%)), the final result was a gain, with the meat segment seeing revenue increase by close to 10%.
