United Arab Emirates: Poultry and Products Annual


UAE chicken meat consumption is projected to rise in 2022 due to a robust economic recovery. Imports are also projected to increase to 445,000 metric tons (MT) in 2022 as tourism, business travel, and events support a stronger hotel, restaurant, and institutional (HRI) sector. COVID-19 related disruptions to supply chains and high prices in 2020 and early 2021 have driven industry consolidation, with a healthier trade emerging. The same disruptions, higher input costs, and other factors have stymied the UAE’s planned poultry production increases.
