Brazil: Food Processing Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BR2023-0006

The Brazilian Food Processors' Association (ABIA) reported that the food processing sector in Brazil had revenue of US$209 billion in 2022, showing a growth of 16.6 percent compared to the previous year. Brazil heavily relies on foreign suppliers to fulfill its food ingredient demands, which offers U.S. companies opportunities to provide high-value ingredients. Brazilian food manufacturers and ingredient importers seek innovative products from new suppliers. In 2023, FAS/Sao Paulo plans to participate with a USDA institutional booth at Nutri Summit Ingredient (NIS) and Food Ingredients South America (FiSA) shows in Sao Paulo.
