Halal meat exports to the Arab League up 10% in first half

Brazil's meat exports to the 22 member states of the Arab League earned more than US$ 2 billion in the first six months of this year, 10% up on the first half of 2012, accounting for 41% of all Brazil's agricultural exports to this region, according to data released this week by the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.

A growing number of Brazilian meat processors are getting halal certification. Brazil's meat industry is getting into the Arab League with low prices and heavy marketing, says Rafael Abdulmassih, business and markets manager for the Chamber.

Saudi Arabia led the Arab League countries in imports of Brazilian halal meat in the first half of teh year, with purchases worth US$ 760 million, accounting for over 50% of the total purchased from Brazil. The next two largest importers in the first half of this year were the UAE (US$ 329 million) and Kuwait (US$ 142 million).
