Brazilian beef exports might hit record

Beef shipments have also increased and are moving to a record. In November, according to data from the Brazilian Association of Slaughterhouses (Abrafrigo), were handled 180.2 thousand tons. In 11 months, Brazil shipped 1.6 million tons of this protein abroad, representing a growth of 13% in volume compared to last year.
The Chinese market is the largest buyer of the year and imported 42.2% of all Brazilian beef, with the acquisition of 727.4 thousand tons. Egypt is the second largest customer with 159,000 tons, followed by Chile with 101,000 tons, the United Arab Emirates with 68,400 tons and Russia 65,700 tons.
Data from Abrafrigo reveal that, until November, 90 countries increased their imports while another 82 reduced. By 2020, it expects that the exports may grow at the same rate due to difficulties in the Chinese market due to African swine fever and new customers such as Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries. In addition, there is still the expectation of Brazilian slaughterhouses to be enabled for the North American market.
