See the world’s number one consumer of eggs Poultry and poultry products report Summary
Mexico Poultry and Poultry products Report Summary
Chicken meat: In 2021, Mexico’s production, consumption, and imports are projected to grow from 2020, on improved HRI demand and recoveries in gross domestic product (GDP). Chicken meat production and consumption through 2020 benefited from growing demand for a more affordable, versatile, and healthy source of animal protein. Mexico’s 2020 imports declined from 2019, but still heavily depends on them to satisfy domestic demand, especially for processing. The United States remains the lead provider of chicken meat to Mexico, benefitting from expired third-country tariff-rate quotas disadvantaging Brazil and Chile in 2020.
Turkey meat: In 2021, turkey meat production, consumption, and imports are expected to increase and exports are forecast to drop. Steady retail consumer demand driven by the perception of turkey meat as a healthy meat and steady production will be complemented by U.S. imports.
Egg and egg products: In 2021, egg and egg products production, consumption, imports, and exports are all expected to increase. During the ongoing pandemic, eggs and egg products saw strong demand from households staying home and cooking more, as well as from baking operations.
Mexico retains its place as the world’s number one consumer of eggs.
