Exports of poultry genetics, including fertile eggs and 1-day-old chicks, totalled 1,828 thousand tons in September, according to the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA). 

The number exceeds the total shipped in the same period last year by 52.9%, with 1,196 thousand tons.

In terms of revenue, the sector's sales grew 29.3%, with US$17.8 million made in the ninth month of 2023, against US$13.7 million made in 2022.

In the year (January to September), the sector's sales accumulated an increase of 75.5%, with 19.1 thousand tons shipped in 2023, against 10.8 thousand tons exported in 2022. As a result, the revenue accumulated this year reached US$179.9 million in 2023, a number 45.1% higher than that recorded in the same period in 2022, with US$124 million.

“The quality of poultry genetics and health status have allowed Brazil to strengthen its role as a safe haven for nations seeking cutting-edge genetics, including nations facing challenges with avian influenza”, assesses the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.

The largest importer of poultry genetics in Brazil, sales to Mexico generated revenue of US$58.6 million between January and September this year, a number 128% higher than that made in the same period last year. Other highlights include Paraguay with US$14.9 million (+17%), Peru with US$23.5 million (+72%) and Venezuela with US$6.5 million (+58%).

“The countries of the Americas are today the main destination for shipments in the sector, which expects to end 2023 with positive results in revenue and volume shipped," said market director Luis Rua.
