The United Kingdom published the updated volumes of poultry meat quotas in Brazil, which will enable an increase in sales of the poultry product to the European destination.  

With BREXIT, the European Union and the United Kingdom established an initial agreement for the distribution of existing tariff quotas (with different tariffs) for sales of poultry meat, which indicated to the British island a total quota of 79.9 tons per year of chicken meat.

After long and detailed negotiations conducted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil, with the support of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), the volume of tariff quotas was expanded to 96.5 thousand tons per year - an increase of 16.6 thousand tons per year. 

"The initial division did not match the reality of the market. Now quotas for the UK have been expanded on virtually all tariff lines. Highlights were boiled chicken and salted chicken. We should already see positive results in our exports from July, when the quota will come into force", analyzes the director of markets at ABPA, Luís Rua.

According to the president of the ABPA, Ricardo Santin, these opportunities should generate additional income of more than US$ 60 million in sales of poultry products to the United Kingdom. 

"It was an important achievement for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Agriculture, which should generate significant positive impacts on the general balance of poultry shipments in the country later this year, in addition to consolidating Brazil as a great partner in the supply of poultry products to the British market", evaluates Santin.
