Chinese Bird Flu Leads to Boost in Brazilian Broiler Buying

06 May 2014

BRAZIL – China imported 1,900 tons more Brazilian poultry meat for the first quarter of 2014 than last year amid the bird flu outbreak.

Mandatory culling and other bird flu measures have led to almost 50,000 tons of broiler meat being bought into China to fill a void left by avian influenza.

This is according to Secex data which also showed a recent surge in Japanese buying, although first quarter shipments are down overall.

Analysts expect the continuing bird flu interruptions to maintain strong demand for Brazilian chicken.
