10th Chicken Producer

Iran is the 10th biggest producer of chicken meat in the world, Homayoun Darabi, the head of chicken farmers union said in a news conference on Tuesday. With more than 2 million metric tons of chicken meat produced every year, Iran has become self-sufficient in chicken farming, he added. The official said Iran produces a surplus of 200,000 tons of white meat every year and exports it to other countries. There are currently more than 23,000 active chicken farms in the country, he said. In the first six months of the current year (to end March 20), the export of chicken meat registered an increase of 80% compared to the same period last year. Given the excessive amount of farmed chicken meat produced domestically, providing export incentives can facilitate the export of this product. About 10 to 15 thousand tons of chicken meat is exported to Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan annually. Russia is set to join the list after reaching agreements on the prices.
