Brazil still needs to be on investors radar
The country is set to be the number one agricultural powerhouse globally within a few years. The UN forecast Brazil will become the world’s largest foods exporter by 2020, while the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) put the potential farmland available in the country at 400 million hectares, of which only 50 million (12.5%) is being utilized. Brazil has as much spare farmland as the next two largest countries on the list combined – the US and Russia. Linked to this is Brazil’s ownership of 15% of the globe’s freshwater supplies, twice as much as its nearest rival.

By 2050, the amount of protein required globally will have to increase by 100% and in response, food prices are expected to increase by 70%. Farmland prices across Brazil have risen by 20% in each of the past three years, reflecting the growing investor interest. Brazil is a top five producer of a range of essential foodstuffs and commodities; there is a direct ‘primal’ link between the fast expanding population across emerging markets and the need to supply them with more food.
