The Netherlands - poultry market looking better
A rise in consumption has lead to higher chicken
prices. Following a dip in production in 2006, the market has now stabilised.
However, higher input costs do not mean higher incomes for producers.
Domestic production of chicken meat in the Netherlands fell 1% in 2006, to
547,000 tonnes carcase weight, and is expected to remain at this level
throughout the coming months. This compares with a 3% decline in the EU-25, in
2006, to around 8 million tonnes. It is expected that production will increase
by about 1.5% over the course of 2007.
