Brazilian beef exports ended January higher than the same period last year. According to data from the Secretariat of Foreign Trade (Secex), released by the Brazilian Beef Exporters Association (ABIEC), the volume exported in the first month of the year was 135.375 tonnes, a 9.84% increase compared to January 2019.

Revenues grew 37.9%, totaling USD 633.25 million. “It’s a positive result, in line with our expectations of growth for this year,” says Abiec’s president, Mr. Antônio Jorge Camardelli.

The result is driven by the performance of China, which is one of the main markets again. Shipments to that country totaled 53.2 thousand tonnes, an 126% increase compared to the same period last year. In revenue, there was a 200% growth, with USD 322.8 million.
