EU chicken: production up, but imports are up by more

Launching its projections for local agriculture in 2015-2016, the European Commission predicted that the chicken meat production in the EU will continue to grow, but less than it did between 2000 and 2014, a period in that saw average growth of 1.6% a year. Now it is expected to barely beat 1%.

Significantly higher growth -at just over 5% in 2015, close to 6% in 2016 - is forecast for imports. Exports will grow by 2.3% in 2015 and 5% in 2016, affected by cases of avian influenza in some countries in the EU.

Many previous studies of this kind carried out by bodies outside the EU have said that by now the EU would have lost its self-sufficiency in the production of chicken meat, ensuring domestic supply through imports.
