Brazilian Chicken Exports to Middle East Grow 69% to Close to US$ 1 Billion

    Chicken from Brazil

    Chicken from Brazil According to figures disclosed July 14 by the Brazilian Poultry Exporters Association (Abef), the Middle East remains the leading foreign market for Brazilian chicken. The region led the ranking of buyers from Brazil in the first half, both in terms of volume and revenues.

    A total of 559,000 tons of chicken meat were shipped to the Middle Eastern market from January to June, growth of 21% over the same period in 2007. Revenues grew at an even greater rate (69%) and reached US$ 969 million in the first six months this year.

    In total, Brazil exported 1.8 million tons in the half, 19% more than in the period from January to June 2007. The shipments generated US$ 3.4 billion, an increase of 58% over the first six months of last year.

    The Abef believes that the performance in the second half of the year should remain positive. However, according to the organization, the sector profitability is being reduced due to the appreciation of the Brazilian real against the dollar and to the higher price of inputs used in the activity.

    Asia was the second main destination for Brazilian chicken in the first half. Sales to the region generated US$ 850 million, growth of 61% over the same period in 2007. Shipments totaled 454,000 tons, an increase of 61%.

    The European Union was the third main buyer, with imports of US$ 764 million, 32% more than in the first half of last year. Trade totaled 283,000 tons, growth of 4%.

    The other countries in South America are in the fourth position with purchases of US$ 242 million, an increase of 155% over the first six months of 2007. Exports totaled 151,000 tons, growth of 88%.

    Africa comes in the fifth position. The countries of the continent imported 127,000 tons, 12% more than in the period from January to June last year. Revenues reached US$ 125 million, an increase of 29%.

    The sixth main market was Russia. Shipments to that country totaled 87,000 tons, 2% less than in the same period in 2007. Exports generated US$ 169 million, growth of 46%.

    In terms of values, chicken cuts were the products most exported in the half (US$ 1.8 billion), followed by whole chickens (US$ 1 billion), salted chicken (US$ 336 million) and processed chicken (US$ 249 million).

      Dear ch.c,

      I knew you were here!

      Dude, you are so pathetic that you are funny! Donˢ۪t stop to entertain us with your jokes.

      the sector profitability is being reduced due to the appreciation of the Brazilian real against the dollar and to the higher price of inputs used in the activity.
      sadly….just a few words on what count the most : profitability
      And a full article for what count the least : quantity

      I suppose this is why you are producing over 500 millions tons of sugarcane….needed to produce a VERY small profitability.

      But this is not restricted to your chicken exports. It includes ALL your agricultural exports !!!!

      Talking of how your farmers are struggling despite the actual high prices…..will show the sad state of where they stand for now.
      But this is something you will never or very rarely at best reveal in detaild to continue your cheating,hiding and lies as you usually do !

      Yesssssss…..Brazilians farmers are making very little money. For Soyabeans farmers In Mato Grosso, their net profits is at around BRL 150.- per hectare in 2008 !!!!! Yesssss….less than Us$ 100.- profits per hectare !!!!
      A pittance when measured against the price of land, return on investments, and whatever metrics one choses !!!!

      Better to sell everything…. invest the capital in Government bonds providing the world highest interests rate after inflation, retire confortably …and not bother to work and taking high risks as entrepeneurs/farmers do on a daily basis !

      Your interests rate are certainly what make the NON envy to work or take risk….if one has some capital !!!!

    • ch.c.

      Yeahhhhhhh !!!!!!
      No doubt that your workers in the industry will continue to…..REMAIN CHEAPLY PAID !
      Otherwise China will replace Brazil, even if they have to import the grains and chaffs to produce the feeds !!!!
