Broiler chicken

Broiler meat refers to the type of chicken that is produced for the sole purpose of meat. The global chicken meat industry consists of many different production levels including feed mills, hatcheries, growing farms, and processing plants. In 2017 there were 22.85 billion chickens worldwide, up from 14.38 billion chickens in 2000. Per capita consumption of broiler meat in the United States amounted to about 91 pounds in 2017, and was expected to increase to 93.2 pounds by 2019. Turkey, the second largest category of poultry meat, was projected to decrease in consumption during that time period.
