Poultry International continues to expand its listing of the world's top poultry producers by publishing information on 350 companies worldwide in its October 2013 issue. WATT Global Media has collected information on the world's leading producers of chicken, turkey, geese, ducks, table eggs, egg products, hatching eggs and day-old chicks. Further data on these 350 companies, plus details on an additional 600 companies can be accessed online at www.WATTAgNet.com/worldtoppoultry.html.
Poultry International began this project five years ago and has been steadily adding companies to its online listings. Listings were increased from 800 companies to 950 companies in the past year, with emphasis on India, China, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and the developing countries of Africa.
WATT conducts the survey by collecting data from every available resource, combing its circulation lists, and sending direct inquiries to readers of the magazine. The company also uses other research tools -- advice from suppliers to the industry, association and governmental statistics, annual reports and business reports, websites, and other sources -- to piece together a profile of each company in the database.
WATT has also created several lists from the collected data, such as the 50 top poultry producers. These lists, and special downloadable files, are also available at www.WATTAgNet.com/Marketdata/topcompanies.
