Surveys by the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) show that exports of poultry genetics (including 01-day chicks and fertile eggs) totalled 14.156 thousand tons between January and June 2023, a number that exceeds by 95% the total shipped in the first six months of 2022, with 7.274 thousand tons, according to a press release from ABPA.

Revenue from poultry genetics exports totaled US$ 129,425 million in the first half of the year, a number 61% higher than that recorded in the same period last year, with US$ 80.543 million.

Considering only the month of June, there was an increase of 44.7% in shipments in the sector, with 1.579 thousand tons in the sixth month of 2023, against 1.091 thousand tons in 2022. Monthly export revenue grew 10.9%, with 16.372 million last month, compared to US$ 14.764 million in June 2022.

The largest importer of poultry genetics in Brazil, Mexico was a destination of 8.912 thousand tons between January and June, a number 260% higher than that recorded in the same period of 2022. Next are Senegal, with 1.572 thousand tons (-37%), Paraguay, with 1.406 thousand tons (+6%) and Peru, with 1.352 thousand tons (+2099%).

"There was a change in the demand for poultry genetics products in Brazil, which have now gained greater relevance in Latin American nations. The strong elevation is proof of the confidence of importers in quality and biosecurity in poultry farming in Brazil," said the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.
