Poultry production in Mexico

GAIN Report MX9025 2 August, 2019

High demand for poultry meat and eggs continue to drive continued growth in Mexican domestic poultry production. Imports from the United States supply the majority of Mexico’s additional needs for chicken and turkey meat for further processing, although Brazil is gaining market share by supplying frozen product under Mexico’s tariff rate quota for third countries. In May 2019, Mexico increased the volume of the quota by 55,000 metric tons (MT) in, bringing the quota total to 355,000 MT. 
The forecast for chicken meat production in 2019 is 3.6 million metric tons (MT) and the forecast for 2020 is 3.7 million MT. The forecast for chicken meat consumption in 2019 is 4.4 million MT and the forecast for 2020 is almost 4.6 million MT.
The forecast for turkey meat production in 2019 is 18,000 MT and 18,300 MT for 2020. Consumption of turkey meat in 2019 is forecast at 182,000 MT and the forecast for 2020 is 184,000 MT. 
Egg production is forecast at 3.1 million MT for 2020. Egg consumption in 2019 and 2020 is forecast to grow at 1.4 percent, reaching an expected per capita consumption of 23.6 kg per person in 2020.
