While Brazilian pork exports were up more than 16% last year from the previous 12 months, average costs of production also rose for the country’s pig producers.

For the month of December, Brazil exported 76,000 mt of fresh and processed pig meat — more than 35% more than in the same period of last year. At US$183.6 million, the monthly revenue also broke previous records.
