São Paulo – Revenues from Brazilian poultry exports, fresh and processed, climbed 5.7% in November of this year, in comparison to the same period of 2016. Among the Arab countries, Iraq, Libya and Jordan registered the sharpest increase in imports.
As reported by the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) this Tuesday (5), last month’s shipments were worth USD 558.5 million, against USD 528.2 million in November of 2016.
Year-to-date ending in November, revenues increased 7%, totaling USD 6.713 billion. Despite the hike in revenues, volume declined 0.8% in November, totaling 325,600 tons. Year-to-date ending in November, 3.999 million tons were exported, down 0.56% against the same period of 2016.
According to ABPA’s CEO, Francisco Turra, the slowdown in shipments is the result of specific adjustments in imports of certain markets in the Middle East and the European Union. “At the same time, there was a consistent increase in imports of South Africa, Iraq, Libya and Jordan,” he said.
