Angola: Angola Becomes Third Largest Market for U.S. Poultry
In 2018, the United States exported US$184 million of poultry to Angola, making the Southern African country the third largest market for U.S. poultry exports in the world. Angola also became the largest market for U.S. frozen chicken leg quarters with 191,187 metric tons, valued at US$166 million. Overall, U.S. chicken meat exports to Angola increased 19 percent from 2017 to 209,468 metric tons. This is due primarily to an increase in available foreign currency (forex), a growing population, a lack of domestic production capacity, and increased cold storage.
