The Brazilian Cotton Producers Association (Abrapa) has renewed its partnership with the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex) to increase the share of cotton in world trade through the “Cotton Brazil” project. The association plans to make Brazil the world’s largest cotton exporter by 2030.
Over the next two years, Abrapa and Apex will devise sales strategies and protocols to ensure good practices in cotton lint shipment operations, with the focus on the sustainability of Brazilian cotton.
Brazil is the world’s fourth largest producer and second largest exporter. It is also the leading supplier of sustainable cotton lint, accounting for 36% of all cotton certified with the “better cotton” seal. According to Abrapa, even though Brazilian cotton has the same quality as American cotton, the market leader, it is sold at an average price 8% lower. From January to June this year, Brazil exported almost US$2 million in raw cotton.
The sale of the 2020/21 harvest of Brazilian soy reached 90.8% of the production expected by October 8. It is still below the average of 91.5% of the last 5 years, according to a survey by the DATAGRO consultancy firm.
This Thursday (10/07), the CEO of SLC Agrícola, Aurélio Pavinato participated in the LIVE VIDEO organized by the program Planeta Campo, on Canal Rural. “Challenges and opportunities in the carbon market” was the theme of the conversation that also featured José Angelo Mazzilo, deputy secretary of agricultural policy at the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Mapa) and Caroline Perestrelo, executive superintendent of the agro corporate of Santander.
