Brazil's pork exports reaches 351,800 tonnes in January-April 2021


Brazil's pork exports, both fresh and processed types, have hit 351,800 tonnes in the January to April 2021 period, an increase of 25.3% compared to the same period last year, according to data from the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA).


Pork sales have also been outstanding in the domestic market. Retail purchases grew 80% from July 2020 to January this year, the Brazilian Association of Swine Producers (ABCS) revealed.


Despite the good numbers in the domestic market, pork producers have been facing some difficulties, with the cost of production increasing in the past several months.
