Jun 17, 2022

Worldwide chicken prices surge

With the worldwide speeding up inflation and the disrupted supply chain chaos, red meat has became more expensive. Also, the choice of chicken as the primary source of protein popularised. Moreover, with the cost of chicken feed, energy and transport increasing, also Omicron is disrupting every part of the production line, shortage of chicken becomes a worldwide issue. Labor shortages, lack of truck drivers, and shortages of packaging materials like plastic, paper, and aluminum are all contributing to surge the chicken price rapidly. In May 2022, US retail chicken price has reached the highest point of the past 15 years ($3.70/kg) and about 20% more than the last 10 year average price.

In 2021, the worldwide broiler meat export volume is 13,326,000 Metric Tons with the leading export countries being Brazil and United States.

As Turkey is one of the largest chicken meat consumption countries and exporting countries (11th in the world), chicken meat exports in Turkey reached the record high (485,100 metric tons) in the past 5 years. Also, Turkey's chicken export was predicted to be increased around 10% to 539,000 metric tons in 2022 according to our import/export trade database's estimation.

The anticipated strong increment in Turkish broiler meat export is mainly because of the demand increase in China and Turkish neighboring countries, as well as the uncertainty of Ukrainian chicken exports. With the increment in chicken exports, domestic consumption of chicken meat in Turkey stays relatively flat from year to year. In 2020, Turkey produced 2,136,000 MT of chicken meat and consumed 1,696,000 MT of chicken meat. In 2021, Turkey produced 2,246,000 MT of chicken meat and consumed 1,683,000 MT of chicken meat.

Top Chicken Exporters Analysis

Chicken is one of the most popular Halal Food Choice and one of the cheapest source of protein in Turkey (99% of the population is registered as Muslim). There are more than 400 exporters of chicken meat in Turkey. This number is still fastly growing as the surging demand for the chicken meat from foreign countries. In the mean time, Turkey does not import any poultry meat as the whole industry is self-sufficient. Another reason for that is the protective tariff for importing chicken meat is 65% tariff and 121% for chicken products under HTS 160232 to discourage the import of poultry meat from foreign competitors.

The leading chicken meat exporters in Turkey are OYTUN PAZARLAMA YUMURTA SANAYI DIS TICARET LIMITED SIRKETI and AKYEM ADANA YEM YAG BIODIZEL TARIM VE SANAYI TICARET ANONIM SIRKETI as per our statistical report.
