During the first trimester of 2018, Brazilian pork exports reached 155,200 tonnes, according to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA). According to these data, the sales have dropped by 13.4% in comparison with the first three months of 2017, when 179,200 tonnes were reached. Regarding the value of the exports, they reached USD 315.3 million: 21.9% less that the USD403.7 million reached between January and March 2017.

Despite the decrease in pork exports both in terms of volume and value, we must highlight the strong increase of exports to China, that reached 39,200 tonnes in the first trimester of this year: 152% higher than the 15,500 tonnes shipped last year. In this same period, the exports to Hong Kong also grew, by 23% precisely, reaching 46,400 tonnes.

“In almost all the markets there was an increase in exports. This helped to reduce the impact caused by the Russian embargo, as between January and March 2017, Russia had imported 68,500 tonnes”, said the ABPA's executive president, Mr Francisco Turra.
