Why Participate in UNITED PORK AMERICAS?

23 October 2021, at 3:44pm


The ‘United Pork Americas’ conference will feature more than 50 internationally renowned speakers in educational sessions to provide information and talk about new technologies and business opportunities for producers, executives, researchers, professors and professionals. All stakeholders in the production chain will be part of the larger topic: “THINK THE PORK INDUSTRY OF THE FUTURE!”


The United Pork Americas exposition will offer 28,000 square feet of booths, where dozens of companies from all over the world will highlight modern technological solutions for pork production systems on five continents.


It is an unprecedented event, organized in the United States, the second largest producer and consumer of pork in the world. The protein industry in a country of more than 300 million and the largest economy on the planet is a success story in the global food industry, standing out in gastronomy; quality production; investments in new technologies; directed consumer marketing efforts; and retail, equity and financing with younger customers.


Global meat consumption has increased 58% over the past 20 years, according to a study published in 2020 by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Science and Economics (Abares). According to the study, both population growth and income increase contributed equally to this index. Developing countries were mainly responsible for this increase in the consumption of meat per capita, since consumption remained practically stable in developed countries.


Working with the pork industry, staying well informed about news and actively participating in events in the segment is essential for all professionals. According to a survey published by the National Pork Board, a program sponsored by the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in 2018, pork accounted for 40.1% of the world's per capita consumption; beef for 21.4%; chicken by 33.3%, and sheep meat by 5.3%.


Being present at this global event, held in the United States, will help put into perspective the depth of value pork brings. Every year, Americans produce 13 million tons, consume more than 10 million tons, export 3.2 million tons and still import more than 400 thousand tons of pork.


The United States is the world's leading exporter of meat. Canada and Brazil also contribute a significant amount to the international market. The USDA estimates the three countries accounted for 55% of the world's pork exports in 2020. In total, America is a power producer and consumer of protein. There are almost 20 million tons of pork coming out of farms every year, exports of more than five million tons and a market that reaches five million tons and more than 500 million consumers.


Chat, learn, teach, do business and interact with estimated 3,000 United Pork Americas participants. It is an event designed to connect all continents, a meeting of global proportion, with the presence of professionals from an estimated 50 countries, representing 150 companies.

United Pork Americas will encourage discussion and reflection on the global transformations that have a direct impact on how we produce our protein today and how we will produce it in the future. In addition to the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, which definitively underscored the importance of food quality and safety for the health of Earth's seven billion-plus inhabitants. There will be three days of diving into countless topics, such as efficiency, productivity, genetics, animal nutrition, automation, biosecurity, climate change, logistics, health, consumer requirements, sustainability, alternative proteins, grains, animal welfare, antibiotics, and growth promoters. Two simultaneous auditoriums will feature content with translation into Portuguese, English and Spanish.
