According to the USDA-FAS latest Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) report, chicken meat production in Turkey is estimated to increase 9% to 2.68 million metric tons (MMT) due to continuing export demands and slightly higher domestic consumption.

In 2023, domestic chicken meat consumption is forecast at 1.7 MMT which is 5% higher than 2022 but under sector hopes, mostly due to expected continued high poultry meat prices at retail outlets that are unlikely to change in the lead-up to the 2023 presidential election.

Furthermore, Turkish chicken meat exports are estimated to increase by 15% to 989,000 MT in 2023, despite issues with the export markets of Iran, China, and Libya.
