Live chicken prices rise sharply this month
Live chicken prices have spiked in recent days. Between May 31 and June 16 in São Paulo they rose by 14.7%, to R$ 2.81 / kg. This surge follows the reduction in supply in every regions monitored by Cepea and the need to transfer high production costs. Wholesale chicken meat prices in São Paulo, as expected by market players, have also increased. Good sales volumes in the first half of June have also favored increases, improving margins.
