Turkey’s production of chicken meat in 2022 is projected higher, in large part because of anticipated strong export demand from neighboring countries and China. Additionally, the uncertainty of Ukrainian chicken exports to select Middle Eastern markets may also fuel increased demand for Turkish chicken meat in these markets. However, if local market conditions warrant, the Ministry of Agriculture & Forest (MinAF) may restrict chicken meat exports to ensure that there are sufficient, affordable supplies available to Turkish consumers. Meantime, rising input costs will continue tempering greater production gains and will put upward pressure on retail chicken meat prices. In response to these higher retail prices, consumption levels are expected to remain flat year-over-year.
