Slight growth in Argentina’s poultry industry projected

Argentina will see a slight rise in chicken meat production and exports in 2021 due to increased demand and a return to economic growth nationally and globally. 2020 chicken meat production is forecast at 2.195 mmt, a 0.87% increase from 2018. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, large poultry companies have altered their operations so that plants can operate with 20% fewer personnel at any time, while still maintaining production. The industry could reportedly produce up to 10% more chicken meat on the current production base if needed.
