South Korea's poultry consumption is forecast to grow by 28.4% through 2015, according to Research and Markets' latest report


The country's numbers will reach 952,600 metric tons even as its domestic stocks remain diminished after recent food safety scares connected to foot-and-mouth disease, according to the report. A key factor in the growth will be a continued increase in health consciousness. Changes to labeling in restaurants could also promote consumption of high-quality imported poultry, particularly from the U.S., and South Korea will continue to rely on imports to make up the difference and meet demand, according to Research and Markets.
