9th International Food Technology, Additives and Ingredients Exhibition

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Costa Salguero Exhibition Center


The South American market

  • South America is the driving force for the growth of meat from all species.
  • The increase of premium quality cuts in South America is a key trend.
  • Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay have all joined this trend with two-digit increased exports over the past two years.
  • Household consumption in those countries has gone up as well.
  • Due to its culture, infrastructure and language, Argentina is the gateway to Mercosur.



Cattle production has traditionally been one of the major industries in Uruguayan agriculture.

In the last 15 years Uruguayan beef exports have grown systematically.

Uruguay’s meat industry plays a major role in the country’s economy. Meat exports represent some 18 % of the total volume.

In international markets Uruguay has a high profile as a red meat exporting country. Its current exports amount to approximately 520,000 tons of beef per annum (2006 – carcass weight), aimed at more than 60 countries worldwide, (1993 - 105 ton).

Per-capita beef consumption in Uruguay is one of the highest in the world.

Its growth is higher than that of the Brazilian market for its dynamics.


Year 2005 shows Paraguay’s highest meat export numbers in its history. 

In July this year, Paraguay will be in a condition to implement all the recommendations of the European Union (UE) to be reinstated in the meat market.




Brazil is more competitive than Europe, but needs to overcome some weaknesses. The environmental, health, typification and traceability areas are still deficient and need to be straightened out for the country to become the food supplier European consumers demand.

Brazil would have a 27-per cent share in the world meat market. Cattle stocks are estimated to reach 207 million heads in 2007. Slaughtering will reach 45 million cattle heads, thus producing 9.2 million tons.

Last year the number of cattle heads in confinement grew by 17 per cent, as a consequence of the profitability achieved in the period between the sugar cane harvest and the use of grasslands for other crops, especially sugar cane, associated to the bio-diesel boom. The estimates reach 1.77 million cattle heads, but by the end of 2007 these numbers could be exceeded.

Beef export projections are deemed to grow by almost 13 per cent, thus consolidating its role as the world’s first beef exporter in 2007. This growth will be possible despite the restrictions placed by Russia, Chile and the European Union, thanks to the market diversification mainly aimed at the Middle East and the North of Africa.




It is among the main producing countries in the world.In our case, the projections for the last year were revised, with a sizable decrease: exports had been calculated to be 600 thousand tons, but the current forecast is 500 thousand tons of carcass weight – everything indicates that this number could also be higher than what proves to be the final figure.

Despite some government restrictions aimed at supplying the domestic market, it remains within the group of major exporting countries. Part of the volume not exported by the country has been absorbed by MERCOSUR fellow members, especially by Uruguay and Paraguay.

After having managed to get the foot-and-mouth disease under control, the country is going through historic times, with the obvious implications in international trade.

The per-capita consumption of beef is the highest in the world.
