United Arab Emirates: Poultry and Products Annual

A lack of UAE approved halal certifiers in major poultry producing countries will force a 10 to 15 percent reduction in broiler meat imports in 2017. As a result of these new requirements, no U.S. poultry suppliers have been able to export to the UAE since June 1, 2017. UAE domestic broiler production is expected to rise slightly in 2017 but will fail to offset decreased import volumes needed to satisfy UAE consumer demand. Without a prompt resolution of the issue, potential supply shortages and price hikes are expected during the fourth quarter of 2017.
