Brazil's pork exports (considering all products) totaled 28,900 tons in January, according to the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA). This is 19.1% down on January 2014's 35,700 tons.

Revenue in the first month of the year totaled US$ 73.3 million, 19.9% down on January last year, when it totaled US$ 91.5 million.

Brazil's largest pork market, Russia imported 8.3% less in January, compared with the same month last year. It imported 10,500 tons in January this year, compared with 11,400 tons in January 2014.

"The severe winter in Eastern Europe hit trade through Russian ports. So, we expect trade to begin to return to normal in February," said the president of ABPA, Francisco Turra.
