members and associations, government statistics, annual reports and
more to piece together a profile of each company.
We select the leading 250 producers of poultry country by country from the database to present in this issue. Because we cover
the world's industry, there is no standard measurement for size or
success across all countries; a large producer in Poland would be
a small one in Brazil. So, for major producing countries, we select
only the top few companies to include here.
Integrated poultry producers are ranked by head slaughtered annually and egg producers by number of laying hens.
The link within each company's listing will take you directly to
