The USDA released its report " Brazil Poultry and Products Annual 2011". The information is very optimistic and promising for the Brazilian poultry industry. The USDA forecasts the country's production in 2012 must increase by 5% and reach another record of 13.6 million MT. The estimated growth is to be supported by a firm domestic demand and higher exports, mostly to emerging markets.


Despite the uncertainties of the world economy, analysts are optimistic about the growth of the Brazilian economy in 2012 which is fueling the rising of household income and supporting demand for animal proteins, particularly broiler, given its relatively lower prices.
