Data from the Foreign Trade Secretariat (SECEX) compiled by the Brazilian Refrigerators Association (ABRAFRIGO) show that in 2020, the country’s beef exports (fresh and processed) reached 2.016 million tons and generated US$ 8.4 billion, record results guaranteed by strong demand from China. According to ABPA (the Brazilian animal-protein association), international sales of pork (including all products, fresh and processed) totaled 1.021 million tons in the 12 months of 2020, a number 36.1% higher than that registered in 2019, when 750.3 thousand tons were exported. In relation to chicken meat, sales in 2020 reached 4.230 million tons, exceeding the total shipped in 2019, 4.214 million tons, by 0.4%. These positive numbers led to an increase in the demand for reefer containers, essential to ensure the conservation of exported products. In 2020, the use of reefer containers in Brazil grew 7% compared to 2019, according to data from DataLiner.
