Japan's poultry
production
continues
to grow
The country's poultry meat
production and consumption
rose last year and this positive
performance is thought to have
continued into 2019.

P

oultry meat production in
Japan is estimated to have
expanded by 2% in 2018, and
a similar figure is expected for 2019.
For the first 10 months of the
year, Japan's production of broiler
meat rose by 2.1%, according
to data from the Ministry of
Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries
(MAFF), while consumption grew
at a faster rate of 3.8%.
The Japanese economy has
been continuously expanding
since 2012, its longest run in postwar history, although growth this
year is expected to be only 0.7%,
according to the Organization
for Economic Co-operation and
Development (OECD). The country's broiler industry has followed
the same pattern, with expansion
recorded in each year after 2011's
contraction in output.

Several factors are reported to
be contributing to this sustained
demand for poultry meat.
Various sources highlight the
ongoing interest in the country for
healthy eating, and chicken meat
responds to this interest.

Factors affecting demand
Where younger consumers are
concerned, demand is being fostered;
innovative product development is
often cited as growing interest in
chicken meat consumption. Where
older consumers are concerned,
there is an ongoing move away from
fish to chicken meat.
The country's aging population and continued urbanization
have also contributed to purchases
of processed as opposed to raw
chicken, and there is a general trend
away from dark meat to white meat.

More generally, despite weak
growth in the economy in 2018 and
2019, and an expected slowdown in
neighboring China, employment in
Japan remains strong and this has
resulted in rising wages to support
domestic demand.
While the poultry industry ended
2018 once again in positive territory, with the last quarter described
as "relatively strong," performance
during the second half is thought
to have come in slightly below that
of the first. For the first five months
of 2018, official figures reveal that
output expanded by 3%.
Yet as 2018 drew to a close,
record high prices for poultry
meat were recorded as stock levels
were drawn down. The first half
of 2018 also witnessed particularly
strong imports, and these were
drawn down during the second six
