Brazil records historic growth in pork exports

Brazilian pork exports are on the rise, reaching a significant milestone in February. According to data released by the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA), the country exported a total of 97.8 thousand tons of the product, representing a 24.4% increase compared to the same period last year.

In terms of revenue, exports totaled US$ 205.7 million, registering an 11.3% growth year-over-year. This positive performance is particularly notable in light of a new configuration in Brazil's international pork market.

ABPA President Ricardo Santin highlighted that there has been a shift in the dynamics of international sales, with less dependence on China and a significant increase in shipments to other destinations. Among them, the Philippines stand out, importing 208.1% more last month, totaling 25.7 thousand tons, and Chile, with a 41.3% increase in imports of Brazilian pork, totaling 19.1 thousand tons.

This significant growth resulted in Brazil's best February for pork exports in history, approaching the 100 thousand ton mark for the first time. Santin notes that this performance is an important indicator of the behavior the sector may maintain throughout the year.

In the accumulated period of 2024, Brazilian pork exports already total 197.5 thousand tons, representing a 17.6% increase over the previous year. Additionally, revenue obtained so far is 1.9% higher, totaling US$ 404.8 million.

This positive scenario reflects not only the quality and competitiveness of Brazilian pork but also the country's ability to adapt to global market demands, diversifying its export destinations and driving sector growth.
