Iran Ranks World’s Second Biggest Ostrich Meat Producer

Business & Markets Desk

With the production of between 50,000 and 60,000 ostriches per year, from which 3-3.6 million kilograms of meat are obtained, Iran is ranked the second biggest producer of ostrich meat in the world after South Africa, the head of Ostrich Producers Association said.
“Meat is not the only product derived from this precious bird. Its feathers, leather, oil, egg and eggshells also bring in profits and create value added when processed,” Behrouz Rezaei also told Financial Tribune.
Ostrich farming on the industrial scale, he added, began in Iran around 14 years ago. But in the first few years and due to lack of sufficient expertise, most of these ventures failed and businesses stopped expanding.
