Poultry production in the Netherlands 2010-2018

Between 2010 and 2018, the poultry production in the Netherlands increased and amounted to roughly 1,100,000 tons in 2018. According to a recent forecast, however, production of poultry in the Netherlands is expected to slightly fall over the next couple of years, reaching just over 1,000,000 tons in 2025.

 Trends in the poultry industry 

  In 2017, there were just over 600 companies in the Netherlands with broiler chickens. Together, these companies kept close to 50 million animals. This came down to roughly 77,200 broilers per company. In the last decade, the poultry industry in the country has experienced a considerable scaling-up: the number of companies has declined, and the remaining companies have taken in a larger number of animals per farm.
