Translations for Poultry Farming

International success with translations

Poultry farming

The Poultry sector is an important (and growing) part of the Dutch food industry. Broadly speaking, we can divide the poultry sector into two branches: the meat and egg industries.

In the meat industry, animals are kept by poultry farmers for the production of poultry meat. The poultry farmer can also opt for the egg industry. In this instance, hens are kept purely for the production of eggs, for consumption or processing into (end) products such as mayonnaise, bread, cakes and pastries, pancakes and meringues.

Egg and meat consumption from the poultry sector is expected to increase further during the next few years: from 23 kg per person to 24.5 kg per person.

Supermarkets take control

Today’s food industry is shaped by the Dutch Retail landscape. Products are produced for specific chains and are no longer interchangeable. As an example, let’s focus on poultry farming, an industry in which the influence of Dutch retailers is clear.

This is demonstrated by the fact that from 1 January 2023, all major Dutch retailers will only sell chicken products with a minimum of one star from Beter Leven’s quality label rating. This means that the Dutch poultry sector will have to make adjustments to its processes, for example, a form of segregation may emerge between poultry farmers focused on the domestic market and those focused on international markets.

These issues are not only confined to the Netherlands. Only recently, the Belgian supermarkets Colruyt and Okay announced that all their chicken meat products will have to meet the requirements of the Better Chicken Commitment from 2026.
