Malaysia to maintain fragile self-sufficiency in poultry


Malaysia's Poultry production growth is seen to reach 1.77 million tonnes in 2020, said a BMI Research report. The country is expected to produce 1.59 million tonnes this year. In 2013 the country produced 1.43 million tonnes. “After a decade of strong growth, we forecast poultry meat production to grow at a moderate pace in the coming years, as rising production costs is undermining the development of the sector.

Malaysia will maintain a fragile self-sufficiency in poultry,” said the report. The sector will continue to expand at a slow pace driven by ongoing investment in the sector. Foreign investors are growing, as foreign food producers see Malaysia as a good entry point to expand to the booming Southeast Asian meat market.
