The poultry industry in Argentina has shown impressive growth rates in the last decade through concerted strategic planning and investments, according to a Rabobank International report. The country has access to feed at highly competitive prices because of the Argentina’s natural advantages as a producer of corn and soybeans and favorable government policies.

Argentina has only recently entered the world poultry market but its low-cost structure and favorable sanitary status make it a key player to meet growing global demand, providing it continues to invest in expansion, Rabobank said.  Argentina’s poultry industry is relatively concentrated and opportunities remain for consolidation by large domestic companies or foreign players entering the market.
