Chicken exports stable
Over a period of 40 months (May 2010 to August 2013) the volume of chicken meat exported by Brazil has been stable.
Although the record in the fourth quarter of 2010 (1.356 million tons) has not yet been beaten, the average quarterly volume in the period (1.308 million tons) is only 3.5% below that, while the lowest volume (1.241 million tons in the first quarter of 2013) was 5% below the average.
If exports in the final quarter end of 2013 remain within the average for these 10 quarters, the total volume exported this year will be around 3.871 million tons, down by 1% on 2012.
