EDITOR'S COMMENT

MARK CLEMENTS

World's Top Poultry Companies:
Who leads and who falls
October sees us return to our focus on which poultry
companies can be classed as the world's leaders.
Like any industry, the poultry industry is subject to all
the usual pressures: acquisitions and mergers, successes and
failures. But unlike many other industries, the sector works
with living birds producing food for human consumption,
meaning that disease and consumer scares are additional
factors that can disrupt performance.
Disease recognizes no borders, and several of the companies listed in this issue
have been affected, to a greater or lesser extent, by avian influenza during recent
years, hitting production and revenues, and influencing their global ranking.

Focus on eggs
This year, we break out egg producers, just as Europe's largest egg exporting
country has been hit with a food safety scandal thought to have extended to 15
countries. While health authorities have played down risks to the public, affected
producers have been hit hard, and it takes time to recover damaged reputations.

As some companies go down, others go up. Brazil, for example, has also been
hit hard by a short-lived food safety crisis, with a consequent slump in exports.
The crisis resulted in a significant loss in sales, but Brazil's exporters are now on
the road to recovery, and exports are forecast to end the year 1 percent higher.
In addition to breaking out egg producers this year, we have also introduced
an index and new graphics. We hope that this will make the edition easier to use,
guiding you more quickly to the key information that you may be looking for.
Revising and keeping the database up to date is a year-round process, but
omissions and errors occur. If we have missed your company, or something with
your listing is not quite right, please let us know. We have a dedicated inbox specifically for this, so email us at topco@wattglobal.com. ■
