One of the plants targeted by the temporary ban was not selling anything to Saudi Arabia. The other, located in the municipality of Dois Vizinhos, was exporting about 6,000 tonnes a month to the country, the filing said.
Credit Suisse analysts said yesterday, however, that the financial impact of the Saudi move was more significant than restrictions imposed in October on products from BRF’s Abu Dhabi plant because of an audit. ■
