Surveys by the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA) indicate that Brazilian exports of eggs, fresh and processed, totalled 1,524 thousand tons in September, which exceeds the total shipped in the same period by 217.8% 2022, with 479 tons.

Revenue obtained from shipments in September reached US$3.946 million, a performance 137.3% higher than that recorded in the same period last year, with US$1.663 million.

In the year, the accumulated increase reached 180.9%, with 22.6 thousand tons exported in the first nine months of the year, against 8.062 thousand tons exported in the same period of 2022.

Accumulated revenue reached US$56.3 million, a performance 214.1% higher than that recorded in the same period in 2022, with US$17.9 million.

“In less than nine months, the egg sector more than doubled the total shipments made in the 12 months of 2022. The significant increase in sales to markets with high levels of health requirements were a differentiator for the sector in the year, and it is expected that the same levels are maintained until the end of 2023”, assesses the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.

The main destination for September exports, Japan imported 888 tons in the period, a volume 922% higher than the total exported in the same month last year. Another highlight was Chile, with 237 tons (+379%).

“It is worth highlighting the increase in the number of markets accessed throughout the year, as well as the fact that exports accumulated in the year continue to exceed the level of 1% of production”, highlights ABPA's director of markets, Luís Rua.
