Saudi Arabia's poultry industry hits 100 million kilogrammes in output in February




Saudi Arabia's poultry industry has reached a new peak, producing a staggering 100 million kilogrammes in February this year, marking a historic achievement.


The milestone is the result of a joint effort between the Saudi government and private sector entities. The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA) underscored the pivotal role played by the Agricultural Development Fund in providing essential support and funding for poultry ventures.


MEWA also highlighted the significance of stringent biosecurity protocols to ensure the projects meet top international standards.


The private sector has been instrumental in this growth, leading to significant production increases. MEWA has recognised these companies' efforts by awarding them the Saudi GAP quality mark, which signifies their commitment to excellence. This accomplishment is in line with Vision 2030's objectives of enhancing the private sector's role in economic development and contributing to the gross domestic product (GDP).
