The United Arab Emirates continued as the main destination for exports, with 3,947 tonnes exported in the first half (+358.4% compared to the same period in 2020).

“The sector is directing its efforts to exports more significantly this year, with the objective of reducing the impacts generated by production costs. These are destinations with high added value, which are reflected in better performance in average prices and more profitability, to ease the bill in light of the historical highs of corn and soy bran”, assesses Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA.
