Brazil’s Beef Output To Grow

12 March 2010

BRAZIL - National meat production must meet 44.5 per cent of world market share, export and consumption demand by 2020, says the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture Livestock and Supply.

The Strategic Management Advisory (AGE) also shows that in 2010, Brazil's share in world export of beef, pork and chicken will be 37.4 per cent.

The relationship between Brazilian exports and world trade shows that in 2019/2020, sales of beef will account for 30.3 per cent of the market, against 25 per cent today.

The results indicate that Brazil will continue to maintain the position of leading world exporter of beef.

The general coordinator of Strategic Planning Map, José Garcia Gasques explains that the international financial crisis in September 2008, has impacted beef exports, reflecting the dynamics of the product.

According to Mr Gasques, in 2020 the Brazilian agriculture industry will be under increasing pressure because of domestic consumption, on account of income growth and world demand.
