Meat export performance decelerates in September

Posted by Marina

Compared to previous months, fresh meat exports slowed down in September. In August, for example, they increased practically 15% in relation to the same month of the previous year. Last month, the annual variation was only 1.66%.

The biggest performance for this low performance comes from chicken meat, which, once again, suffered a volume reduction (4.5%) in relation to the same month of 2019. But beef also contributed to the slowdown, because, in the month, its shipments lost their previous pace, increasing by less than 3%. Thus, only pork meat remained in the same good pace, as its shipments in September increased by almost 36%.

Continues after the form

In terms of price, none of the three meats was saved, as all obtained an average price lower than that of September 2019. But, again, the biggest losses (16.61% less) fell on chicken meat, the price of meat beef declining by almost 3% and that of pork remaining practically stable (decrease of 0.26%).

With such performances, only pork obtained an increase (of almost 35.5%) in foreign exchange revenue. Beef meat fell slightly (only 0.09%) and chicken meat fell by more than 20%. As a result, the foreign exchange revenue for the three meats, considered exclusively the fresh product, ended up registering a drop of more than 5%.
