  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Turkey is the world’s 9th largest poultry producer. Poultry sector revenue in 2014 was $ 4.5 billion in Turkey and there was increase in domestic poultry production, consumption and especially exportation. In 2015, exports reached over $450 million despite avian influenza outbreaks and turmoil in the region. The number of broilers in 2015 reached 214 million with 6.8 percent increase compared with the previous year. The number of laying hens in 2015 reached 99 million with 5.2 percent increase compared with the previous year. Insufficient feed available has been a problematic issue for poultry production and targeted production in the future, as well. The poultry sector has encountered many problems in raw material importation for feed due to the Biosafety Law and its regulation. According to the Turkish Poultry Meat Producers and Breeders Association (BESD-BIR), sector increased by 8.8 percent in 2014. However Turkish poultry exports have declined 17 percent in quantity in 2015 because of the geopolitical problems and avian influenza outbreaks
