7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

UAE res­i­dents must love eat­ing chicken be­cause 422,000 tonnes of poul­try meat was con­sumed in the coun­try in 2014, with of­fi­cials putting a value of Dhs3.2 bil­lion on the poul­try mar­ket. The Min­istry of Econ­omy shared the study’s re­sults based on of­fi­cial data on do­mes­tic pro­duc­tion and for­eign trade. UAE im­ports of poul­try meat in 2015 amounted to Dhs2.977 bil­lion, grow­ing 5.9 per cent over 2014. Ex­ports stood at nearly Dhs40.92 million, while re-ex­ports were worth Dhs79.5 million. Do­mes­tic pro­duc­tion was found to ac­count for only 11 per cent of the to­tal con­sump­tion for 2014.
