Poultry and egg export value up 10.5 percent in 2017, biggest gain for industry since 2013

U.S. poultry and egg exports increased in value by 10.5 percent in 2017, the biggest annual gain since 2013, marking an impressive recovery by the industry from the severe impact of the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) crisis three years ago.

Combined exports of U.S. poultry and eggs were $4.509 billion in 2017, up $427.1 million from 2016, according to trade data released this week by USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.

The value of poultry and egg exports had declined in the wake of the HPAI outbreak in 2014 and 2015. Export value fell 25.8 percent in 2015, alone. The crisis cost the U.S. industry more than $4 billion, the worst revenue loss in the industry’s history.
