Brazilian fresh pork exports showed an increase by 11% in October 2018, reaching 54,3000 tonnes in comparison with the 48,900 tonnes shipped in October 2017.
Nevertheless, in the first 10 months of 2018, the sector's exports reached 450.200 tonnes, a volume 10.5% lower than the 502,900 tonnes in the same period in 2017. In terms of value, the decrease has been by 26.1% (USD925.8 million in 2018 vs. USD1,252 million in 2017).
"China still stands out as the destination with a greater increase,compensating the losses caused by the closure of the Russian market, now reopened for Brazil. The sales to the South American markets, such as Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, together with Angola, helped to maintain the good performance in October”, explains Mr Ricardo Santin, executive manager of the ABPA.
