Iran Eyes 40% Increase in Poultry Output

TEHRAN – Iran’s Acting Minister of Agricultural Jihad Muhammad Aqamiri said on Wednesday that the country plans to meet a target of 3.5 million metric tons (mt) in annual poultry production as it seeks to expand its presence in export markets.
Fortunately, due to the measures taken, we have become self-sufficient in meeting the poultry demands of the country, Aqamiri said, adding that Iran is after increasing its poultry production capacity by 40% or one million mt per year to increase exports.
“We need to create new capacity in poultry production to manage the domestic market as well as to develop and stabilize the export market,” he said.
