EDITOR'S COMMENT

MARK CLEMENTS

Recognizing the
World's Top Poultry Companies
October is when we return to our annual ranking of the World's Top
Poultry Companies - broiler and egg.
Whether you are looking to find out which company is the
world's - or a region's - largest chicken meat or egg producer, you
will find the answers in this edition.
A quick scan of this year's data throws up some interesting figures.
Thirteen of the top 50 broiler producers are in the U.S., while
seven are in the European Union - although this may decrease by Oct. 31.
There are only three Brazilian companies in the top 50. Two take slots No. 1
and No. 3. You have to go all the way down to No. 34 to find the third Brazilian
company. Together, however, they account for almost one-quarter of the birds
slaughtered by the 50 leading producers.
Focusing on the 10 biggest chicken meat producers, as to be expected, some
have seen production increases and others have declined, while a few have seen
output remain largely the same, but this has not been enough to alter their ranking compared with last year.

Layer flocks
Looking to the egg sector, U.S. domination is even more apparent among the top
25, with 11 of the leading companies based there. Only one company is based
in the EU. Latin America again makes a good showing, but this time it is not
Brazil that dominates, as it has only two egg companies, and they are toward the
lower end of the ranking. Rather, it is Mexico that occupies five of the top spots,
including the No. 2 position. China, despite being the largest egg producer in the
world, is not home to any egg company ranked in the top 25.
Whatever your reason for consulting the rankings, I am sure you will recognize the huge amount of work that goes into their compilation, and I will finish
by extending a very big thank you to all of the team who have worked to bring
Top Companies 2019 into being. ■
