The Poultry and Egg Industry in South Africa


The poultry and egg industry accounted for one-fifth of total agricultural gross value and 40% of the gross value of all animal products in South Africa in 2020. The industry is the primary supplier of quality, affordable protein to South Africans and there are over a million households in the country engaged in some form of poultry production, mostly on a subsistence level. Consumption of poultry and egg products is significantly higher than combined consumption of beef, pork, mutton and goat meat.


Cheap Imports


While demand for poultry and egg products has consistently increased, drought, avian flu and cheap imports have affected the local industry. Imports have targeted the low-priced brown meat bone-in products that are the mainstay of the local industry. These factors have led the industry to show growth in recent years while at the same time experiencing local production capacity decline, consolidation and vertical integration.


Influencing Factors


The coronavirus lockdown reduced international poultry trade while causing an increase in demand for local poultry, in particular egg products. The industry is constrained by high input costs (particularly animal feed) and cheap and dumped imported product. Pressure on consumer spending has constrained the industry and shaped the product mix towards lower priced portions. These factors have led to consolidation in the industry.
