Brazil's pork exports up by 24.3% in April

Brazil's pork exports totaled US$ 108.5 million in April, up by 24.3% on the same period in 2013, according to data from the Foreign Trade Office (Secex) compiled by the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA), which represents the poultry and pork industries.
In volume, pork exports totaled 36,700 tons in April, an increase of 24.8% on the same month last year.
In a statement, the president of the ABPA, former Agriculture Minister Francisco Turra, attributed the growth of exports in April to the authorization of new plants to export to Russia. In addition, he also believes that the difficulties faced by the USA, suffering an outbreak of porcine epidemic diarrhea, have made room for Brazilian exports.
