Mexico Agribusiness Outlook 2014

Mexico’s economic growth is gradually improving, but food consumption remains vulnerable to income and price effects, according to a report from Rabobank – Mexico Agribusiness Outlook 2014: A positive year but full of challenges. The Mexican economy is expected to recover gradually in 2014, after a slow 2013, with Rabobank forecasting 2.9% growth, mostly occurring during the second half of the year. However, sector-specific challenges will continue to affect agribusiness. Grain and oilseed production is expected to be driven by declining prices and margins. Animal and meat prices and margins are expected to increase, although disease is expected to threaten both hog and poultry production, while the sugar and beverages sectors are expected to face a difficult year.
