In early October, chicken meat continues in high demand in the monitored regions. According to researchers from Cepea, sales – which were already heated even at the end of September – intensified at the beginning of the month.

As a result, many sellers raised prices, but only slightly, fearful that too high levels would drive away buyers. Chicken meat exports showed a strong increase in September, after having decreased in August.  418 thousand tons were exported an increase of 10.2% compared to the previous month and 21.3% more than in September 2020, according to data from Secex compiled by Cepea.

See the chart below for a history of Brazilian chicken exports. Data are from DataLiner:

Cepea researchers point out that heated foreign sales were added to the high price of Brazilian poultry protein on the international market and the appreciated dollar against the Real, a scenario that resulted in record revenue.
