Philippines: 2021 Livestock and Poultry Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   RP2021-0053

Philippine pork production in 2022 is forecast to stay flat at 1.0 million metric tons (MT), as some areas continue to face African Swine Fever outbreaks while others expand operations. Pork imports are expected to drop by 25 percent to 375,000 MT in 2022 compared to the raised 2021 estimate of 500,000 MT, following the scheduled expiration of greater market access and resulting higher prices. Post forecasts 2022 chicken meat production to grow 2 percent as the economy reopens and food service demand rebounds. Chicken meat imports are seen reaching 400,000 MT in 2022 and 420,000 MT in 2021, reflecting robust exports midway through the current year. Beef imports are also forecast higher, at 225,000 MT in 2021 and 230,000 MT in 2022, following strong demand from the meat processing sector.
