Chicken exports from Brazil have seen significant growth with impact of avian influenza across the globe, according to Brazil's poultry association ASGAV

In March alone, the country earned $980 million in sales of chicken meat to international markets

With the spread of avian flu on all continents of the world, Brazil, which is already the largest supplier of chicken on the planet, has seen its relevance increase even more in the product market, with much higher sales than last year.

Data compiled by the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), released on Monday (10/4), show that in March the growth in sales was 23% and 27% in total revenue, when compared to the same month of 2022.

With cases in much of South America at the moment, avian flu surrounds Brazil. It does not threaten human health, but it is a risk for this industry, since outbreaks usually lead to the suspension of exports. The Getulio Vargas Foundation estimates that the entry of the disease into Brazil could cause losses of R$ 13.5 billion.
