Brazil expects record pork and poultry production and exports in 2021

The association, which represents major companies such as JBS SA and BRF SA, expects Brazil’s overall poultry production and exports to rise 3.5% and 8%, respectively, from a year earlier, Reuters reported. .

Production and pork production are expected to increase by 6% and 10.5%, respectively, according to ABPA data.

In the domestic market, the sector is benefiting from the increase in pork consumption per capita as well as a recovery in sales linked to government social programs and expanded cash distribution initiatives during the coronavirus pandemic.

Yet the industry has faced unprecedented cost pressures from rising feed, fuel and packaging costs.

“It’s been a difficult year,” said Ricardo Santin, director of the ABPA, during a press conference. “Rising costs are a reality that we will continue to face in 2022.”

Strictly from an animal feed perspective, Santin sees some relief from projections that Brazilian farmers will produce a record corn crop in 2022, despite a drought in the south of the country.

Maize carryover stocks, estimated at around 10 million tonnes at the start of 2022, will reach around 14 million tonnes at the start of 2023, Santin said, citing government forecasts.
