Japan: Poultry and Products Annual

Japan's poultry meat production is projected to continue steady growth in 2019 and 2020 on improved productivity as a result of industry consolidation. Efficiency gains, particularly for feed use, will help push down wholesale prices and fuel consumption of new product offerings. Imports of chilled and frozen chicken meat are projected to slow on higher domestic supply as well as trader difficulty procuring volumes from traditional suppliers. However, this decline will be partially offset by increased imports of prepared and processed products as Japanese processors continue shifting operations overseas.
