According to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), total egg production in the country is expected to reach 52.55 billion units in 2023, 1% higher than the 52.06 billion units produced in 2022.

The per capita consumption of eggs in Brazil is expected to end the year around 242 units, a number 0.5% higher than the 241 units per capita consumed in 2022.

In exports, projections indicate total shipments of 32.5 thousand tons of eggs from Brazil, a number 240% higher than the total exported in 2022, with 9.47 thousand tons.

“There was a change in egg export flows in 2023, with a significant gain in relevance from Japan and the newly opened Taiwanese market," said Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA. "In this context, it is expected that egg exports reach the level of 1% of the total produced by Brazil. This is an important achievement for the sector, generating new opportunities for producers."
