Driven by strong internal demand, EU chicken meat production is expected to grow in 2023 and 2024. In 2024, Poland will be again the largest EU chicken producer, accounting for more than 20 percent of all EU chicken production. The EU trade surplus in chicken meat is expected to slightly decrease in 2023 as the EU continues to import more chicken products from Ukraine. This trade is facilitated by the EU decision to temporarily suspend quotas and tariffs on Ukrainian imports. A boom in EU tourism is fueling import demand in the HRI sector. Conversely, EU chicken meat exports remain constrained by HPAI-related bans in some EU customer countries. The adverse impact on trade is prompting discussions on the future of HPAI vaccination policy.
