Meat production in Brazil is hit be trucker blockades

Poultry and pork producers are facing difficulties in getting inputs and delivering perishable loads as truckers block roads, reports the CEO of the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA), Francisco Turra.

The strike is hitting poultry and pork producing regions in the Southeast and South. "The unions need to be aware of the serious problems that can result from preventing live cargo, perishable products and supplies for farms. Animals could starve to death and food will be lost," says Turra.

The strike may also affect exports at a delicate economic time. "We are in a period of recovery after the negative performance seen in January in poultry and pork. There is a lot of concern in this regard for the economic impact that the possible reduction of deliveries may cause, " says Turra.
