According to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), chicken meat production should reach up to 14.95 million tons produced over the 12 months of 2023, a number 3% higher than that recorded in the same period last year, with 14.52 million of tons.

The availability of products on the domestic market should reach 9.85 million tons, a volume 1.5% higher than the 9.70 million tons registered in 2022. With this, the per capita consumption of chicken meat should remain at 46 kilos in this year, 1.5% higher than the 45.2 kilos per capita recorded in 2022.

For the first time in history, the sector should overcome the barrier of 5 million tons exported, if ABPA projections are confirmed. This year, the entity's expectation is for total shipments of 5.20 million tons, a volume up to 8% higher than the shipments registered in 2022, with 4.82 million tons.

“Brazil should continue to gain space in the international market," said Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA. "This is, in part, thanks to the expansion of business with the main commercial partners and the reduction in shipments from the main competitors of Brazilian exporters. At the same time, a better balance between supply and demand can already be seen in this second half, with more reasonable production costs after three years of historical highs in the price of the main inputs."
