The 180,000-tonne share of chicken exports to the European Union has been granted to the countries party to this agreement. Exactly twice the last proposed rate at the end of 2017, agreed by the members of the union.
Some experts believe the agreement has directly targeted livelihoods and employment opportunities prevailing in rural areas in this sector.
Some producers in this sector believe that over the past 20 years, the union has made many efforts to implement stronger policies in areas such as animal welfare, food safety and the environment in chicken production. The efforts that seem to be of little importance with the recent agreement!
It should be noted that the European Union currently imports nearly 900,000 tons of chicken meat from third countries.
