WATT Global Media has conducted WATT Poultry USA’s annual survey and rankings of top integrated broiler and turkey companies annually for decades. The results reported are composed of a combination of company-submitted information and estimates made based on input from publicly reported information and industry sources. In addition to providing what has become the “official” rankings of chicken and turkey producers in terms of millions of pounds of ready-to-cook chicken produced annually and the millions of total live pounds of turkeys processed annually, the survey also provides insight into the most important activities of the chicken and turkey companies over the past year.
