Turkey: Poultry and Products Annual
Following several stagnant years, Turkey’s broiler meat production is recovering – forecast to rise 4 percent and 1 percent in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Producers continue to be challenged by the lack of an affordable and dependable feed supply. Consumption remains firm due to broiler meat’s relatively low price compared to beef. However, growth is driven by population, not expansion in per capita consumption. Only minor export growth (1 percent) is forecast in 2018.
