Brazil: perspectives for the pig sector

In 2011 there was a 4.9% increase in pig production compared to 2010.

Monday 12 December 2011 (6 years 6 months 11 days ago)

The latest data published by the Brazilian Association of Industrial Swine Production and Exports (ABIPECS) shows a 4.9% increase in pig production compared to 2010, rising from 3.24 million tons in 2010 to 3.50 million in 2011. This result is due to increased productivity and the average weight at slaughter. Throughout this year the market has absorbed 84.7% of supply over 83% in 2010. Domestic availability increased by 6.7%, matching the consumption potential, estimated at 15 kg per capita.

Regarding next year, ABIPECS expects a modest increase (2%) of supply and a positive trend in the foreign market, with developments in exports to Asia, a region that seems to have become the leading destination for pork in Brazil. In fact, Hong Kong has become a major importer. Brazil's exports to Hong Kong and China are expected to exceed, in 2012, those to Russia.
