According to the USDA's most recent Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) report, Argentine chicken meat production is projected to reach 2.38 million metric tons, up very slightly from 2022 levels.

Exports for 2023 are projected at 190,000 tons, up 4% from 2022.

Argentine exporters have gained new export opportunities as a result of trade disruptions stemming from the conflict in Ukraine, and these gains are expected to be maintained in the short term.

As economic difficulties have affected Argentine consumers, the lower relative price of chicken to beef means that per capita consumption of chicken is approaching parity with beef, the traditional protein preferred by Argentines. While total consumption has continued to rise in line with population growth, per capita consumption is expected to plateau.
