Russian poultry exports for 2011 may increase by three to four times from last year's 15,000 metric tons, according to the Russian Poultry Producers Union.

The country's total output is currently estimated to hit 3.2 million tons this year, up 300,000 tons from 2010. Kazakhstan and China, the main buyers of Russian poultry, are expected to account for a significant percentage of those numbers.
