Brazilian Hog Industry Exports Expected to Recover

15 July 2013

BRAZIL - The Brazilian pork market is geared for exports, as domestic demand has not shown consistency in recovery.

Cepea agents believe that resumption of sales to Ukraine and Russia, and execution of shipments to Japan, will lead to repetition of the same performance as last year.

Cepea researchers warn that achieving this goal will not be easy, but the resumption of sales to Ukraine this month is most likely to enable new plants to export to Russia.

A Russian mission was in the country recently to review Brazilian pork plants.

The advance of trade with Japan can be considered another asset to achieve the goal.
