Brazilian poultry sector gains market share in Mexico and Southeast Asia
After being authorized to export poultry meat to Mexico in 2013, Brazil sold more than 3.5 tons to the country in the first five months of this year, and this is expected to reach 30,000 tons by the end of the year.
Five poultry slaughterhouses in Brazil are currently approved by Mexico, but this number should increase this year, partly due to the ongoing struggles faced by the pork industry in North America with PEDv, which is increasing the demand for poultry.
Mexico is among the three largest importers in the world of chicken meat, buying about 700 tons in 2013. Southeast Asia and Africa are also targets for the Brazilian poultry sector this year, because they have strong potential for income growth.
China approved 29 Brazilian slaughterhouses by June. Pakistan approved exports by Brazil in March.
