According to a news release from Brazilian poultry association ASGAV, exports of poultry meat and its edible, fresh, refrigerated or frozen offal in the nine working days of April represent almost 60% of the total collected in dollars and of the volume shipped in the entire month of April 2022. The report was based on information from Brazil's Secretariat of Foreign Trade (Secex) of the Federal Government, which was released on Monday.

SAFRAS & Mercado analyst Fernando Henrique Iglesias states that exports are a positive point this year, especially in one in which costs are falling in this first half. "We have a large export force," he said. "Chicken meat is no mystery because we have an important direction for more than 100 countries. It's a very solid moment, and I see that we can potentially see a year of record shipments for chicken meat."

The revenue obtained from chicken meat exports so far in April, US$ 430,569,728, represents 57.54% of the total collected throughout the month of April 2022, which was US$ 748,185,385.
