Surveys by the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA) show that Brazilian exports of poultry genetics reached 2,321 thousand tons in November. At 1,498 thousand tons, export volumes were 54 .9% higher than those recorded in the same period of 2022.

Revenue from shipments in the month reached US$19.238 million, 1.7% lower than November 2022 when sales reached US$19.576 million.

This year so far, shipments of poultry genetics totalled 23,893 thousand tons, a volume 72.4% higher than the 13,857 thousand tons exported in the first 11 months of 2022.

In the same comparative period, revenue grew 38.2%, with US$219.8 million between January and November 2023 and US$159 million in 2022.

Mexico continues to lead imports in 2023, with a total of 12,723 thousand tons imported between January and November this year, up 94% over the same period last year. 

Other highlights include Senegal, with 3,538 thousand tonnes (+9.8%), Paraguay, with 2,436 thousand tonnes (-3.8%), Peru, with 1,455 thousand tonnes (+898.4%) and South Africa, with 1,362 thousand tonnes (no records of shipments in 2022).

“The poultry genetics sector in Brazil has played an important role in the recovery of flocks in countries impacted by outbreaks of avian influenza," said Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA. "An example of this is South Africa, which quickly accelerated its imports and took first place in November among the destinations for Brazilian exports."
