Coming soon is the International Poultry and Swine Show (SIAVS) to be held from August 9-11, 2022, at Anhembi venue in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. SIAVS is transforming itself to be an important international meeting point for the Brazilian animal protein industry.

SIAVS is important because chicken production continues to grow in Brazil, although egg production has slowed down a little bit. Like in all countries, chicken and eggs were continuously produced during the pandemic and consumption grew a lot.

The Brazilian poultry industry is doing well, although high production costs are having a negative impact. However, chicken exports are doing very well, with 32% of production exported to more than 150 countries at a rate of about 400,000 metric tons per month. Exports have been of great help in balancing costs.

Based on the fact that chicken is the easiest protein to produce in respect to nature and sustainability, this year, SIAVS is pushing for sustainable production and world food security.

With this, Brazil wants to show that when the world looks at the origin of animal protein for those born until 2050, Latin America is a place that is ready to produce. The region’s climate, water and grains availability ensure global food security. Brazilians say that their intention is to complement local industries and to ensure that there is supply in the future.

It is worth attending SIAVS. There will be more than 100 conferences, an Egg Symposium and a Sustainability Symposium. However, from my personal point of view, the one experience that makes worth attending SIAVS, without a doubt, is the “Panel of the CEOs.” This time, nothing more, nothing less than the chief executive officers of JBS, BRF, Aurora and São Salvador − some of the largest animal protein companies in the world − have already been confirmed for this panel. They will be speaking about their experience and their impressions of the future of the industry. In past editions, this panel has given me many ideas to write about the industry, as well as data and insights.

SIAVS can be a way to fly over to see the world poultry panorama.
