Record whole chicken export revenue for first half of the year

In the first half of 2013, only one of the four items of poultry meat exported by Brazil increased in volume exported: whole chicken. The others fell by between 0.76% (salted meat) to 17.22% (processed meat). Chicken cuts fell by 10.15%, and overall exports were down by almost 5%.

The tough economic scenario explains whole chicken's performance - of the four options, it is the cheapest item. This, of course, pushed up prices on the international market. The average price increased by 22% on the same period in 2012.

Efforts by the export sector ensure improved prices for cuts and processed meat (the exception being salted meat). However, it was not enough to increase export revenues. Only whole chicken closed the first half with an increase in export revenue. The increase was significant (+27.49%), and so overall revenue for the sector increased by 7.21%, a record for the first half of the year.
