Global chicken meat production for 2023 is little changed from the April forecast at 103.5 million tons, according to a USDA Foreign Agricultural Service report.  

Production by Brazil, EU, and China were not revised on a continued outlook for improved feed prices and as no major outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) have been reported.

Global chicken meat exports for 2023 are raised less than 1% from the April forecast to 13.8 million tons. 

Shipments by Brazil are revised 2% higher to 4.8 million tons on stronger shipments to Asia, the Middle East, and smaller non-traditional markets. Brazil expansion is supported by the absence of HPAI in commercial operations, competitive prices, and extensive product offerings fulfilling the needs of various markets. 

Thailand is raised 5% higher to 1.1 million tons on increasing shipments of uncooked chicken meat to Asia including Japan, China, and South Korea.
