Philippine chicken production fell slightly by 0.16% in the first half of this year, reaching 817,820 tonnes compared to 819,110 tonnes in the same period in 2015, latest data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) showed.

Despite the lower output, the industry’s gross value still grew 8.8% to top USD 1.6 billion compared to last year. The PSA attributed the growth to higher farm price, which averaged USD 2/kg in the first half of this year, up near 9% from 2015.
