U.S. tops in poultry exports once again, surpasses Brazil for first six months of 2018

The U.S. is No. 1 again. U.S. poultry exports in tonnage for the first six months of 2018 surpassed those of Brazil for the first time since 2014, according to new USAPEEC research.

The change at the top is a result of continued increases in U.S. poultry exports, coupled with a significant decrease in exports by Brazil in the first half.

The gap between the two countries is expected to grow through the first seven months of this year, too, as it is anticipated that trade data will show the U.S. exported more poultry than Brazil in July.

High-level negotiations between the U.S. and Mexico continued this week as the countries worked toward a revised NAFTA deal, and indications were that an agreement between the two may be near. But just how close they are, and when Canada would come to the table remained uncertain.

“It’s continuing to look like the U.S. is close to finalizing a revised NAFTA agreement with Mexico, although a few difficult issues remain,” said USAPEEC President Jim Sumner. But, he added, “Many issues still need to be resolved with Canada.”
