Brazil closed 2023 with a positive balance in poultry production and exports. The year 2024 should maintain the growth line, according to projections by the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA), presented at a hybrid press conference in São Paulo.

In the case of the egg sector, the country's production is expected to reach 52.55 billion units in 2023, an increase of up to 1% compared to 2022. Exports, in turn, are expected to register growth of up to 175%, with up to 26 thousand tons shipped per year.

For 2024, the trend is for further advances. Production is expected to grow up to 6.5% in relation to 2023, accounting for up to 56 billion units produced. Exports are expected to remain stable at 26 thousand tons, considering the total shipped in 2023.

Per capita consumption is expected to register a slight increase of up to 0.5% compared to last year, totaling 242 units per inhabitant. Next year, consumption is expected to grow by up to 6.5%, with up to 258 units per inhabitant.

“Remaining at levels above the global average for five years, egg consumption in 2024 is expected to approach the highest level ever recorded by the sector, indicating positive expectations regarding the presence of this protein in family consumption," said Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA. "In the same sense, exports follow favourable trends for the sector, with the consolidation of important markets for protein."
