Record chicken slaughter in Paraná
In January this year Paraná slaughtered a record 132.43 million head of chicken, 6.49% up on the same period last year, when 124.36 million head were slaughtered. The data are from the Paraná Poultry Product Industry Association (Sindiavipar).
The president of Sindiavipar, Domingos Martins, says growth in the business in Paraná this year is expected to be three times higher than Gross Domestic Product (GDP). "I see 2014 as a very promising year. We will certainly grow a lot, by three times national GDP," he says.
