Global poultry trade may
become turbulent in 2018
Despite a positive start to the year for the world's poultry industry,
several negatives loom on the horizon that could have a serious
impact on the global trade in poultry meat.
MARK CLEMENTS

Global trade in poultry meat
could be heading toward a
series of significant disruptions as 2018 progresses,
prompting Rabobank
to warn in its "Poultry
Quarterly Q2 2018"
that the sector could
face "its biggest shakeup
in decades this year."
Among factors cited by
the bank are the repercussions
from Brazil's Weak Flesh investigations, including recent restrictions
on EU trade; a pending ban on meat from
stunned birds in Saudi Arabia; North American Free
Trade Agreement (NAFTA) renegotiations; and Chinese
dumping investigations of Brazilian product. Avian influenza will also have an ongoing negative impact.

Brazil will be the most affected

loses market share, but they will
not be able to fully replace Brazil's
position in these markets.
Additionally, Brazil is losing the advantage it gained
when competitors were hit by avian influenza. The
U.S. in particular has been regaining markets with its
outbreaks now behind it, and the loss of confidence in
Brazilian product.

Global prices
EU trade restrictions are impacting breast meat
prices, the Saudi standard is challenging the whole bird
market, and the China-Brazil dispute and NAFTA renegotiations could potentially affect the dark meat market.
If NAFTA renegotiations result in trade restrictions,
it may be difficult for the U.S. to find alternative markets for its dark meat, putting downward pressure on
dark meat prices. The country exports 3 million tons of
