USDA International Egg and Poultry: South AfricaUSDA International Egg and Poultry: South Africa

South Africa’s poultry meat imports represent 2% of world trade by value in poultry meat and 4% by quantity. Broiler meat accounts for 92% of all of South Africa’s poultry meat imports with the balance mostly turkey products. The share of chicken bone-in portions of total poultry meat imports has increased significantly from 29% in 2010 to 40% in 2012 due to increased volumes from European Union suppliers.

The rate of South Africa’s poultry meat imports is highly correlated to the percentage change in the value of the rand against the U.S. dollar. In 2011 broiler meat imports increased by 36% and overall poultry meat imports increased by 32% as the rand strengthened against the U.S. dollar. It is estimated South Africa’s broiler meat imports increased 13% and total poultry meat imports increased 14% as the rand weakened 12% against the U.S. dollar. It is forecasted the rand will continue to weaken in 2013 resulting in only a 7% increase in broiler meat and total poultry meat imports for 2013. Broiler meat imports will represent almost 22% of local broiler meat consumption.

South Africa imported 53% of their poultry meat from Brazil in 2012, however, this is down considerably from the 73% market share in 2010 due in part to anti-dumping duties placed on Brazil (2012), which have since been lifted. The United States (U.S.) currently ranks 6th in poultry meat exports to Brazil. U.S. chicken exports declined to South Africa after they renewed anti-dumping duties at the beginning of 2012.
