World's largest poultry exporter thinks about using GMO cornStaff Writer | October 12, 2016
Brazil's BRF, the world's largest poultry exporter, is weighing the possibility of importing corn from the United States as local supplies remain tight, CFO Alexandre Borges said.
Brazil The supply shortage continues
"We are still evaluating, but we see as a positive development the fact they opened up this possibility," Borges told reporters after meeting investors and analysts in Sao Paulo.
BRF is still studying several aspects related to the import procedure, Borges said. But as the supply shortage continues in Brazil, the local poultry and pork industry is likely to import the U.S. corn, he said.
"We continue to see a tight supply in the short term. This window to buy U.S. corn could help to relief this tightness," Borges said. ■
