Sri Lankan poultry output expected to decline


Poultry production is expected to decline 3% more than expected due to limitations in importing the required inputs to cater to the fast growing poultry demand in the country.

According to the Department of Animal Production and Health, chicken meat production this year is estimated to reach 189,020 mt compared to 182,690 mt in 2016, a growth of 3% year-on-year. In comparison, the compound annual growth rate of chicken meat production between 2014 and 2017 was estimated to be approximately 8%.
