Record poultry production in the EU

The EU has reported record poultry production in 2018, reaching a total of 15.2 million tonnes, up by 3.2 million tonnes compared with 2017, according to Eurostat data. 70% of the EU poultry production came from six Member States: Poland (16.8%), Great Britain (12.9%), France (11.4%), Spain (10.7%), Germany (10.4%) and Italy (8.5%).
An increase in production was reported in East European countries, such as Poland (2.5 million tonnes), Hungary (525,000 tonnes) and Romania (452,000 tonnes, up by 11% compared with the year before). At the same time, Ukraine increased its poultry exports in the EU market, which led to accuses coming from the European producers who are already talking about a market crisis. Last week, Commissioner Phil Hogan announced that the EU is preparing an amendment to the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) with Ukraine in order to limit the import of certain poultry products.
