EU - Broiler meat production forecast for 2012 has been slightly revised downward (but still higher than in 2011) mainly due to the difficult economic situation which is predicted to slow the growth in domestic demand for broiler meat.

Domestic consumption of broiler meat is also forecasr to increase this year. This is driven by a combination of term diet changes away from red meats and a sluggish economy which encourages the consumption of lower-cost poultry meat.

According to the USDA's EU-27 Poultry and Products Semi-annual 2012, the import forecast for 2012 has been raised. While broiler meat export estimates for 2012 show an apparent decline from previous estimates, this trend hides the removal of chicken paw export figures to Hong Kong and China which were included in the previous estimates.
