Brazil is the second-largest chicken meat producer in the world after the United States, and the largest chicken meat exporter in the world. Post forecasts chicken meat production will increase three percent by the end of 2023 and reach 14.9 million metric tons (MMT). Production is expected to increase one percent in 2024, reaching nearly 15.1 MMT. These forecasts are a record for Brazil and are based on strong external demand, socio-economic performance, and improved costs of production. Brazil continues to maintain its status as free from Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in commercial plants. Post forecasts domestic chicken consumption in 2023 at 10.06 MMT, and at 10.02 MMT in 2024. Chicken meat exports are forecast to increase nine percent, reaching 4.85 MMT in 2023 and an additional four percent in 2024 at 5.04 MMT. Brazil is working to open new markets, increase product diversity in existing markets, and negotiate regionalization clauses to its current health certificates.
