United Arab Emirates: Poultry and Products Annual
UAE consumption of chicken meat products has fallen but stabilized. Imports are projected to decline further in 2021 to 400,000 metric tons. The hotel, restaurant, and institutional sector has suffered greatly from COVID-19, and it accounts for the majority of import demand. The UAE market is expected to recover in late 2021 as major international events resume. UAE poultry producers have been able to take advantage of trade disruptions and are expanding with increased government investment.
