Brazil Looks to China to Expand Poultry, Pork Business
The Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA), in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), is promoting a major initiative with Chinese market importers at the start of May in Shanghai.
Ricardo Santin, vice president of poultry, is spearheading the ABPA initiative. He points out that China has a consolidated position as a top player among importers of Brazilian poultry and pork.
With new exporter plants being qualified in 2015, China is buying more and consolidating its place among the biggest importers of pork and chicken meat made in Brazil.
"China has taken on an extremely important strategic role in our export market. On the one hand, the country is responsible for a hike in chicken meat shipments. On the other, it has been establishing a position as an important player in restoring balance to the size of market share held by pork importers.
