Brazilian egg exports - fresh and processed - totalled 1,026 thousand tons in October, reported the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA). Shipments reached 587 tons, exceeding those of 2022 by 74.8%.

Revenue increased 38.5%, with US$2.389 million generated in the tenth month of this year, against US$1.725 million in the same period in 2022.

Over the 10 months of 2023, 23,669 thousand tons were exported, a volume 173.7% higher than that recorded in the same period last year, with 8,649 thousand tons. In the same period, egg exports generated revenue of US$58.715 million, a balance 198.7% higher than the total accumulated in the same period of 2022, with US$19.657 million.

“Egg shipments remain at levels notably higher than the history of the last 10 years, and should end this year representing volumes of shipments that should exceed 1% of total national production, gaining markets and revenue for the country, but ensuring a sufficient amount of this highly versatile and nutritious protein for Brazilian consumers”, said Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA.

Among export destinations, there was a reversal of positions among the main importers. Chile, a market that, until recently, had not imported eggs from Brazil, began shipments and has already taken the lead among the main destinations, with a total of 385 tons imported in October. Next is Japan, with 218 tons imported in the same period, a number 99.6% higher than that achieved in the same period in 2022.

“Increasingly, Brazilian producers have been looking to the international market as another sales alternative, including increasing sales of processed eggs that have high added value”, said markets director Luís Rua.
