Iran’s Fully-Fledged Chicken Farming Industry

Chicken is the most consumed meat in Iran and with a chicken and egg output of over 3 million tons per year, the industry has played an important role in the country’s food security. 
With a chicken farming industry dating back 63 years, Iran is among the top 10 producers of chicken and eggs in the world, according to a report published in Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture’s monthly journal Ayandenegar.
Per capita chicken consumption in Iran is twice the global average. Statistics indicate per capita chicken consumption in the world is around 11.5 kilograms while it is 25 kilograms in Iran.
There are 393 million broilers in the country and only 300 million are being used for their meat. The country produces between 165,000 and 175,000 tons of broilers per month. 
The domestic broiler farming industry has a turnover of 110 trillion rials ($2.6 billion).
