Brazil expects its meat exports to China to climb as African swine fever has heavily impacted China’s domestic pork supply, said Tereza Cristina Dias, Brazil’s agriculture minister.


The outbreak of African swine fever in China has killed about 200 million pigs, although it doesn’t pose danger to humans. It hurts the domestic pork supply and demand for animal feed, sina.com reported, citing international wires.

“We are going to sell our protein at $2,000 a ton, be it chicken, beef or pork,” said Dias.

Dias will visit China in May to defend Brazilian soy exports with Chinese officials, the report said.
