Poultry meat consumption in the EU to increase in 2012

In contrast to the overall consumption of meat in the EU, poultry meat consumption will rise in 2012, by an estimated 0.8%, primarily due to greater domestic demand and relatively low cost, according to the European Commission report on Short-Term Prospects in February 2012.

World demand for poultry meat is growing, except in the US, where demand is likely to remain constant. In that country, low profitability has led to a cut in production since the second half of 2011. Net production in the EU is expected to grow by 0.6% in 2012 and 0.7% in 2013.

In relation to trade flows in 2012, exports should decline by 1.2%, and this trend should continue in 2013, with imports at the same level in 2012, as they were in 2011.
