The drop in prices is mainly because of a decrease in demand.

As expected by players of the sector, high levels of broiler prices have been discouraging consumption in the retail market.

In the short-term, players surveyed by CEPEA say that there are no expectations of major price recoveries, given that sales are typically reduced in the second fortnight of the month.
