Turkey: Poultry and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TU2021-0032

Despite the rapidly growing demand for chicken meat in Turkey due to the growing population, in 2022 chicken meat production is forecast to increase only three percent compared to 2021 to 2.23 million metric tons (MMT). In 2021, chicken meat production in Turkey is expected to grow slightly at 1.5 percent to 2.17 million metric tons (MMT) due to high feed prices and the closing of fast-food restaurants and hotels due to Covid-19 restrictions. Consumption is constrained because of insufficient production, increasing exports, and high market prices. In 2022, chicken meat exports are estimated to reach 539,000 MT, which is 10 percent more than 2021. This is in line with increasing exports to Iran and Libya. In 2021, chicken meat exports are estimated at 490,000 MT, around 10 percent higher than the previous year. In 2020, exports reached 442,214 MT and were valued at $483 million.
