Angola: Poultry and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Post forecasts production to remain stable in 2021, as Angola will be unable to expand due to a lack of foreign exchange and the prohibition of GE feed products. Production consists of backyard chickens and a few commercial farms. With minimal production Angola relies on chicken meat imports which account for 88 percent of consumption. In 2019, Angola was the sixth largest importer of U.S. poultry meat by value ($150 million). However, due to limited access to foreign exchange and reduced consumer purchasing power, Angola chicken meat imports have decreased significantly in 2020 but are forecast to stabilize in 2021. The United States is, and is expected to remain, Angola’s largest supplier. Angola is now self-sufficient in egg production with an estimated one billion eggs produced per year.
