South Africa: Poultry and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SF2021-0051

Post forecasts that chicken meat production will increase by five percent in 2022 on industry investment and lowered input costs. Chicken meat consumption is forecast to strengthen by three percent due to economic recovery and rising costs of substitute proteins. Imports will decrease by three percent due largely to increased tariffs, yet this impact will be dampened by recovering supply chains and strengthening demand that cannot be met through domestic production. Post forecasts that South Africa’s chicken meat exports for 2022 will increase by six percent as exports recover from a downturn in 2021.
