In their 2015 Annual Report, AVEC (the EU Poultry Trade Association) published statistics on the consumption of poultry meat per head throughout the EU.
Ireland were the 4th highest in the EU in 2014 consuming 30.4kg per head of population. We were beaten by Portugal at 39kg, Spain at 31kg, and Hungary at 30.5kg. Our near neighbours in the UK consumed 28.5kg.
In the global league table, the leaders are the USA at a staggering 50.7kg, so that’s a big figure to aim for!
