March 29, 2021
The U.S. was the top exporter of chicken and turkey to China in the first two months of the new year, according to newly released data from the General Administration of Customs China (GACC).
In January, the U.S. surpassed Brazil for the third consecutive month as the leader for broiler imports by China with a total of 56,214 tons, compared to 51,290 tons by Brazil.
As is typical, imports by China decreased in February due to the impact of the Lunar New Year holiday period, and the 39,755 tons of broiler meat imported from Brazil was slightly higher than the 37,642 imported from the U.S.
