Poultry farming is the most important food production sector in the world and in 2020 as much as 133 million metric tons of poultry meat was produced in the world, requiring a feed input of more than 280 million metric tonnes. Production cycles can be as short as 35 days for broilers to reach market sizes allowing poultry to have one of the shortest cycles in production of animal food.
As profit margins are continuously being challenged, the need for improved breeds that allow for shorter production cycles, improved production facilities that are more cost efficient becomes apparent. Disease prevention and biosecurity also play an important role resulting in more cost efficient players gradually dominating the market. Additionally, with increased customer awareness on food production coupled with the impact of social media on everyday life, there is increasing demand for the poultry industry to become healthier and more sustainable while managing costs.
