Brazil to lead the chicken meat exports in 2011

According to Food and Agriculture Organization, in 2011 Brazil blazes the trail to consolidate its position as the leading chicken meat exporter, responding for one-third of the whole chicken meat traded internationally. Besides, Brazil’s soybean production reduced its distance from USA’s to the point that may well threat its leadership in the sector.

Additionally, beef, corn and rice production have recorded important gains in 2011, as well. Given the advances in the agribusiness are seemly irreversible, FAO warns Brazil, though, to pay more attention and dedicated more investments to reduce the constraints caused by the limitations in the infrastructure, which has been causing serious problems to the country’s agribusiness exports.
