Top Poultry Companies FAQ

WATT Top Poultry Company surveys are conducted annually to gather information about the world’s leading broiler, turkey and waterfowl meat and egg producing companies.

How the companies are ranked varies by region of the world where the company operates and by the type of commodity produced. The survey data are comprised of a combination of company-submitted information and estimates based on input from publicly reported information and industry sources.

 In-depth Top Poultry Company survey reports are produced for the U.S. broiler, turkey and egg producing companies. Other in-depth reports are prepared for Top Poultry Producing Companies in Latin America, Europe and Asia.

Further data on trends in global poultry meat and egg production and consumption with forward looking projections are prepared as part of Poultry Trends.
