According to the Poultry Farming Peruvian Association (Asociación Peruana de Avicultura, AVA), Peru is the highest chicken consumer country in Latin America for the second consecutive year.
Peruvians eat an average of 47 kilograms of chicken per person. “This year, consumption will reach 48 kilograms per person, estimated Apolonio Suárez, APA president”, said Gestión.
As for other types of meat, Peruvians eat an average of 20 kilograms of fish per person per year, 8 kg of pig and 8kg of red meat.
“One of the plans of the poultry farming sector is to export chicken to the United States. However, the sector needs to go through a specific process to reach this goal.
