Brazil receives authorization of four new plants for exporting chicken meat to Malaysia

The authorization by the Malaysian health authorities reaches four meatpacking plants in Brazil - two BRF units, one from JBS Aves and one from Vibra Agroindustrial, which are located in Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Paraná and Rio Grande do Sul. The qualified units They will be added to the other three cold storage plants already authorized to ship products to Malaysia – two from BRF and one from Jaguafrangos, located in Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais and Paraná. 

Malaysia is internationally recognized as one of the markets with the highest criteria for halal products   among Muslim-majority nations, and has significantly increased its imports of chicken meat from Brazil. Last year, the country imported 13.6 thousand tons, a volume 45.7% higher than that recorded in the same period last year.

"We have more than doubled the number of plants qualified to serve the Malaysian market, which should register good increases in volumes shipped throughout 2024. This is important news for Brazil, which is the largest global exporter of halal chicken meat and has seen its presence will increase in the Islamic market", assesses the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin.

According to the markets director, Luís Rua, "the coordination of actions between the Ministry of Agriculture and other Government departments, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has been achieving great progress in expanding the international presence of Brazilian proteins, which is reflected, for example, in the new qualifications for Malaysia".
