Eggs and poultry

Despite common biological origins, egg products and poultry meat are considered to be separate markets economically. In 2018 the EU produced 15 million tonnes of poultry meat, the largest producers being Poland (17%), the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany and Italy. In the market for egg products, the Netherlands have to be added to the list. The EU is an important net exporter in both markets.
