Chicken Exports Keep Growing in Brazil Led by Japan

    Brazilian chicken exports increased in both volume and revenues in January, compared with January, 2004, according to a report released yesterday February 17 by the Brazilian Association of Chicken Producers and Exporters (Abef).

    According to the Abef, export earnings in January amounted to US$ 199 million, as against US$ 164 million in January, 2004: an increase of 20.53%. In terms of volume, the increase amounted to 16.6%, rising from 161 thousand tons to 187 thousand.


    Japan and Saudi Arabia continue to be the biggest buyers. In January alone they imported US$ 39 million and US$ 33 million, respectively.


    According to the Abef press office, earnings are growing faster than the volume, because market prices have improved. Both prices and sale volume should continue to rise in consequence of the opening of the Chinese market.


    Korean Interest


    In an audience on January 20, a group of lawmakers from South Korea informed the Brazilian Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply, Roberto Rodrigues, of their country’s interest in purchasing Brazilian chicken.


    South Korea has the potential to import, annually, 60-80 thousand tons of chicken from Brazil, and the expectation is for the first shipments of the product to be embarked before the end of this semester.


    South Korea’s interest in importing Brazilian poultry grew after the outbreak of cases of “bird flu” in the countries that are its traditional suppliers.


    Since Brazil has never registered any incidence of this disease, the Koreans began negotations with the Ministry of Agriculture. Another Korean mission visited Brazil last year and licensed four slaughterhouses for exportation.


    Brazil also intends to export beef to Korea and awaits a definition by the Koreans on opening its market to this product. Kim Jin Pyo, president of the Korean delegation, revealed that South Korea is analyzing Brazil’s sanitary conditions, particularly with regard to the erradication of hoof and mouth disease in the country.
