Brazil pork exports to beat 2020 forecast

 

 

According to pork and poultry processor group Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) on Friday, the 2020 pork exports of Brazil are seen to surpass initial estimates, driven by Chinese demand, Reuters reported.

 

ABPA estimated Brazilian shipments of pork at between 900,000 and one million tonnes in 2020, which would represent 33% growth compared to 2019. In December, ABPA had predicted a hike of at least 15% in Brazilian pork exports in the year.
