Canada to remain net poultry importer through 2015
Production growth at 11% over next four years
According to a Research and Markets "Canada Agribusiness Report Q1 2011" study, Canada will remain a net importer of poultry through 2015 even as production is projected to grow by 11%.
Poultry production will reach 1.34 million metric tons in 2014/2015, according to the report. This boost will come from an increase in consumption due to the perceived healthier nature of poultry, as well as greater export opportunities.
Overall, Canada's agriculture production will experience moderate growth over the medium term due to increasing competition for export markets and small domestic demand growth.
