History

Founded in 1979, from a need for exporters of beef to become more performance focused and more agressive in defending their particular interests, the ABIEC became the main representative of industry in the areas of international trade regulations, health requirements and open markets.
The creation of ABIEC was a milestone for the industry and the Brazilian economy, since the institution has given voice to its members and facilitated the dialogue with national governments, other international organizations and class.
In partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency - ApexBrasil (Apex-Brasil), ABIEC and its associates have participated in international fairs, such as SIAL in Paris (France); Sial China in Shanghai (China), Prodexpo in Moscow (Russia), Gulfood in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), and Anuga in Cologne (Germany),
All partnerships require effort and dedication. To perform all the steps, the results are positive and the achievements a reality.
We used to sell just over $600 million per year, but today the reality is different. In 2017, Brazil reached approximately US$ 6.3 billion, increasing the value of its exports by more than tenfold.
In 1979 Brazil's participation in the global beef market was still nascent, marked by a series of requirements and protectionism.
Besides of defending the members' interests and stimulating technical development, professional and social from enterprises, ABIEC has worked with state and federal governments in implementing health programs (public and animal health) through technical committees.Brazil has health agreements with several countries and at the same time the production sector and ABIEC accelerated its professionalism, seeking new markets successfully.
as well as workshops in partnership with Brazilian embassies around the world and to receive authorities and opinion leaders who visit the meat production chain in order to promote Brazilian products abroad.
About fifteen years ago, Brazilian beef was not on the agenda of the issues discussed in international forums.
It is with this heritage that ABIEC will continue to work and fight to strengthen the image of its associates and of Brazil in this demanding world Market.
