The price competitiveness, diversity, quality, consistency and targeted marketing of chicken has made it Australia’s favourite meat! Australians are eating more chicken every week than any other meat. They eat 49kg of chicken per year – 54% more than 15 years ago. During this time beef consumption has fallen from 34.9kg to 18.8kg.

There has never been a better time to be in the chicken business!
