Angola: Poultry and Products Annual
Post forecasts production to increase slightly in 2022, despite Angola’s challenges to expansion, including to a lack of animal feed, veterinary medicine, chicken feedlots, general infrastructure, and the prohibition of genetically engineered (GE) feed products. In 2020, Angola was the ninth largest importer of U.S. poultry meat by value ($80 million). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and reduced consumer purchasing power, Angola chicken meat imports decreased 45 percent in 2020 but are forecast to increase in 2021. The United States is still Angola’s largest poultry supplier and is expected to remain so in the near future.
