African swine fever will continue to benefit Brazilian producers in 2020

The effects of the African swine fever that hit China, are expected to keep being felt in 2020. According to the Citigroup’s Senior Commodities Strategist, Aakash Doshi, pork producers in Brazil, the US and Europe will continue to benefit next year.
Doshi estimates that China will import a record of 3.5 to 4 million tons of protein from these markets in 2020. Imports of chicken and beef should also increase.
Only in September, the Asian country imported 152,104 tons of beef, an increase of 52.5% in the year comparison. From January to September 2019, 1.13 million tons of this protein were purchased by the Chinese.
Demand increased and prices went up. In Brazil, as soon as new slaughterhouses have been enabled, most of them beef, there has already happened a price reaction in the domestic market. The beef forequarter cuts increased 16%.
“With this increased demand in China and the diverting of products to this market, there is already an effect on the supply of other Brazilian meat buyers, such as Egypt. We have been talking about this for a few weeks and continue to believe that this crisis in China should have many effects in the world market”, says Giordano Fiorentin, Trade Marketing Supervisor at KIT International.
