The poultry and eggs sectors: Evaluation of the current market situation and future prospects
This study for the European Parliament analysed the current situation in the European poultry meat and egg sectors, comparing it with that in other key countries worldwide. Specifically, it analysed the consequences of the 2006 avian influenza outbreak and evaluated the effect of recent increases in input prices on the sectors. In addition, the impact of European legislation on poultry welfare was assessed in terms of its impact on production costs and the competitiveness of the European poultry meat and egg sectors vis-à-vis third countries.
