Brazilian beef shipments are 6.3% higher in March

Brazil has remained among the main suppliers of animal protein worldwide and the quality of what is exported promotes an increase in beef shipments. According to a survey by Farmnews, 134 thousand tons of protein were shipped last March, a number 6.3% higher than that registered in March 2020 (126 thousand tons).
China remains the main consumer of Brazilian beef and increased its purchases by 16.7% in the first quarter compared to the same period in 2020. With Hong Kong, the Chinese increased almost 10 times the revenue from Brazilian exports in 10 years , from USD 104.90 million in the first three months of 2012 to USD 1.02 billion in the same period this year.
Also showed an increase in purchases in the first quarter, compared to the same period in 2020, the Philippines (+ 57.7%), Italy (22.5%) and the United Arab Emirates (0.3%).
“The hunger of the Chinese has been moving the meat market daily and Brazil, like other countries, has a reduced supply of animals. High demand and reduced supply keeps prices high for protein trading and, compared to last year, we already have an increase of more than 50% in the price of beef. We are working to ensure that our customers are served with the best offers and are supplied when necessary”, says Fabio Leone, commercial beef manager at KITGarra.
