Spain: Spanish Poultry Sector Update

Commodities

The temporary pause in the hospitality sector, tourism, and weaker export demand following the COVID-19 pandemic, has negatively impacted the Spanish poultry meat sector. While domestic chicken and turkey production grew steadily for the last three years, Spanish poultry meat producers anticipate that in 2020, chicken production will lower about five percent and turkey production by ten percent. Conversely, household egg consumption rebounded during the government-mandated lockdown and effectively offset the sales loss to HRI. Hence, in 2020, the Spanish industry estimates egg production will increase three percent.
