May is the second best in the history of poultry shipments
Brazilian exports of chicken meat in nature presented the second best ever in history, with 345,900 tons. The volume is lower only in May 2016, when 353,919 tons were registered.
The total shipped surpassed in about 10% the volumes registered in April of the last month and in May of 2018. According to SECEX / ME, the average value increased 6.3% in relation to the previous month and 11.3% in May of the last year. US$ 1,700.65 per ton is the best monthly result in four years.
Revenue totaled US$ 588.254 million for chicken in nature, representing an increase of 18% compared to April and more than 22% compared to May 2018.
"We had already anticipated that May would be an excellent month for chicken exports, and this eventually concretized. The market is warm and we should continue this way, registering an increase in shipments and good prices for sale", believes Giordano Fiorentin, Trade Marketing supervisor at KIT International.
