Avian influenza in Asia boosts demand for chicken from Brazil

International demand for chicken meat from Brazil has been boosted by avian flu in some countries in Asia, as buyers seek more sanitary guarantees, says the president of the Brazilian Poultry Farming Association (UBABEF).
Hong Kong, South Korea and China are among the countries that have reported recent cases of avian influenza and have destroyed poultry to prevent the spread of the disease.
Total shipments of chicken meat from Brazil, the largest exporter of the product, increased by 3.3% in January, to 300,000 tons, compared to 290,400 tons in the first month of 2013, UBABEF reported Tuesday.
The UBABEF figures include whole chicken, cuts, salted and processed meat.
