Brazilian Chicken ExportationPosted by admin at 15 Jan, 2019
Consolidated data from SECEX / MDIC encompassing the four items of chicken meat exported by Brazil - whole, cut, processed and salted meat - show an annual volume of 4.013 million tons and a revenue generation of approximately US $ 6.48 billion, representing a fall of respectively 5.22% and 9.24% over the results for 2017.
The final SECEX / MDIC data for chicken meat in 2018.
As exports of fresh produce showed smaller declines - of 3.24% in volume and 8.67% in revenue - it is concluded that industrialized and salted meat had a strong influence on the reduction faced. Note that the reduction rates recorded would have been higher were it not for the recovery observed in the second half. In the first half of the year the volume exported was 13% lower, while revenue fell 17%. In the following semester, the volume increased almost 3% in relation to the same period in 2017, while revenue, although still negative, decreased by less than 1.5%.
The recovery, however, was late. For the year ended up being closed with the lowest volume of the last four years and a result very similar to that achieved in 2014 (difference, more, less than half percent). Foreign exchange revenue has not only been at its lowest level since 2010, but also declined by close to 7% compared to (some) US $ 6.950 billion achieved ten years earlier in 2008.
Regarding production, APINCO's projections based on the domestic housing of broilers and taking into account the productivity indexes indicated by the market indicate that in 2018 the sector had sufficient potential to produce close to 13.289 million tons of chicken meat, which compared to the estimated 13,612 million for 2017, represents an annual reduction of 2.38%.
