The North America region is the third largest poultry and poultry products export area in the world for the United States (US). The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS) considers Canada, Greenland, Mexico, St Pierre and Miquelon to be part of the to be part of the North American Region. Most of the poultry the US exports within the North America region goes to either Canada or Mexico with very little to either Greenland or St Pierre and Miquelon.

Overall total US poultry and poultry product January-October cumulative export totals increased five per cent from 2008 to 2009 into the North America Region. The almost 18 per cent increase in broiler meat exports and the 165 per cent increase in egg and egg products were off set by a 27 per cent drop in turkey meat exports into the North America Region. The increased broiler meat exports were due in response to greatly improved interest from Mexico and a continued gradual increase from Canada. Meanwhile, Canada's interest in egg and egg products continued and helped push up exports while Mexico's interest stagnated. Turkey meat exports for the January-October period have slowed most noticeably going into Mexico even though Canada was also not as active as last year for the comparable time period.
