Brazilian exports of chicken meat generated US$ 251.5 million in September, which represented a 24.15% reduction when compared to the same period last year.

    Shipment totaled 209,560 tons, a reduction of 17.83% in the same comparison. The figures were disclosed yesterday by the Brazilian Poultry Exporters Association (Abef).

    According to the Abef, the sector faces unfavorable conditions in global trade due to the outbreaks of avian flu in Asia, Europe and Africa early this year.

    Apart from that, Brazilian poultry farming is also losing due to the appreciation of the Brazilian real against the dollar.

    From January to September this year, exports totaled US$ 2.26 billion, a reduction of 9.92% when compared to the first nine months of 2005. Shipments totaled 1.93 million tons, representing a reduction of 9.3% in comparison to the same period.

    The greatest market for Brazilian poultry was Asia, which imported 555,210 tons in the first nine months of the year. Exports to the region generated US$ 669 million.

    The second market was the Middle East, which bought 511,870 tons from January to September. Exports to the region generated US$ 543.94 million in the period.

    Then came the European Union, with imports generating US$ 468.95 million. Shipments to the region totaled 244,000 tons.
