Chile is the country that most imported Brazilian pet products in the first quarter; companies from both countries participate in business roundtables next Tuesday (28)
São Paulo, June 2022 – The Brazilian pet market predicts business expansion in South America this year. Chile is one of the focuses: in the first quarter of this year, it is the country that most imported Brazilian products, with a FOB value of approximately BRL 4 million – ahead of the USA (BRL 3.8 million) and Colombia (BRL 3 million), according to data from Comex Stat.
In this context, around 25 companies from both countries will participate, on the 28th, at 10 am, in an international business roundtable. The event is promoted by IPB (Instituto Pet Brasil), an institution that, for nine years, has stimulated the development of the Brazilian pet sector, in partnership with ApexBrasil (Agência Brasileira de Promoções e Exportações e Investimentoss), within the Pet Brasil Sectorial Project.
The roundtable will be virtual and feature lectures by Samo S. Gonçalves, head of the Economic and Commercial Sector at the Embassy of Brazil in Santiago, and Selma Nunes, vice president of the Chilean-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.
What is the project
The Pet Brasil Sectorial Project offers guidance to companies interested in exporting their products and services, as well as promoting the Brazilian pet sector through trade missions, business roundtables, Brazilian delegations at international fairs, among other tools. Countries such as Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, China, and the United Arab Emirates are among the focuses of the business roundtables in the project calendar in 2022.
The fair calendar began in March, at Global Pet Expo, in Orlando (USA), with the intermediation of Brazilian companies for the event. IPB was also present and gave support to national businesses at Interzoo (held in May in Germany). The International Pet Meeting (November, in Brazil) is also part of the calendar.
