Uruguay meat export revenues reach US$2.3 billion through October

Thanks to problems between Australia and China, the drought and the mad cow disease in Brazil, the self-exclusion of Argentina and the drought in the western part of the United States, Uruguay has been able to increase its market penetration.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Uruguay exported, as of the tenth month of the year, US$2.3 billion in the meat sector, 53% more than in the same period of 2020. Likewise, 530,000 tons were sold between October 2020 and 2021. The figure exceeds the record of 480,000 tons achieved in 2006.

The head of the National Meat Institute, Conrado Ferber, attributed these achievements to the fact that the country improved its industry and the number of calves and took advantage of international circumstances.
