ABPA projects an increase in production and exports in pork from Brazil

The year 2023 should be marked by further increases in production and the international presence of poultry and pig farming in Brazil. These are the projections of the Associação Brasileira de Proteína Animal (ABPA), presented today (16th), at a press conference held at the association’s headquarters in São Paulo.

PORK – In the case of pork, ABPA projections also point to exceeding the total of 5 million tons – in this case, for production. In all, the country is expected to produce 5.05 million tons of pork this year, up to 1.5% more than the 4.983 million tons produced in 2022. 

The availability of products for the domestic market should remain stable in relation to 2022, with a total of 3.85 million tons. The same should also occur with per capita consumption, repeating the index of 18 kilos registered in 2022.

The projection for exports is 1.25 million tons, 12% higher than the export of 1.12 million last year. 

“The opening and expansion of several relevant markets on the international pork trade board, combined with sustained demand from the main buyers in Brazil, reinforce the prospect of growth in shipments. In this sense, in view of the maintenance of internal demand, production should consolidate around five million tons”, evaluates the director of markets, Luís Rua.
