2016-2020 Organic Chicken Market Analysis VS 2021-2031 Forecast

The organic chicken market reached US$ 2.5 Bn 2020. Increasing awareness about the health benefits of eating organic food is the chief growth enabler. As the birds are raised in a clean environment and fed only organic feed, hygiene was a key driver for the market in the historical period from 2016 to 2020. Other factors that were included were increased consumption of bakery products and high protein diets recommended by gym trainers.

The practice of raising animals and then slaughtering them for food causes animal suffering and endangers human health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), animals are the source of more than 75% of emerging infectious diseases. Factory farm animals are crammed together in filthy and feces-ridden conditions, and they are butchered on killing floors soaked in blood and other bodily fluids, creating a breeding ground for pathogens and viruses. To avoid outbreaks of animal-borne pandemics such as the alleged COVID-19 pandemic, the world could shift to plant-based protein sources, resulting in an increase in plant-based protein consumption.

Demand for organic chicken is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.5% percent in terms of value between 2021 and 2031. Growing consumer preference for chemical-free foods, willingness to pay more for high-quality foods, and an increase in bird-flu outbreaks are some of the key factors driving the growth of the fresh organic chicken market.

How is Increasing Awareness about Unethical Broiler Chicken Feeding Practices Bolstering Growth Prospects for Organic Chicken?

The broiler chicken segment accounts for more than 93.5 percent of the global poultry market, with the organic chicken segment accounting for the remainder. Broiler chickens are fed harmful chemicals and antibiotics to help them grow faster, which causes early puberty in females and male fertility problems.

Regular consumption of broiler chicken, which contains high levels of unhealthy fats, can lead to obesity, high blood pressure, and heart problems. The majority of broiler chickens have a high level of infection, which causes salmonella dysentery in humans.

With the advent of the internet, consumers have become more knowledgeable and aware of the poultry industry's know-how. This will gradually cause a stir in the global poultry market, and the fresh organic chicken market is expected to grow at a rate 5-7 percent higher than the regular chicken market over the forecast period.

How Will Smart Packaging Generate New Growth Opportunities for Organic Chicken?

At the moment, the food and beverage industry is the largest user of smart packaging, which is widely used in the packaging of meat products such as chicken. Foster Farms, a leading poultry company, has introduced DORI, an active and interactive packaging. Users will be able to access information such as more than 500 fresh chicken recipes and a glossary of poultry labeling terms by scanning a QR code. As a result, such packaging serves as an effective medium for delivering information to consumers.

During the forecast period, an increasing number of vendors are expected to adopt this cutting-edge technology. Vacuum skin packaging, a modern packaging technique, has a high customer satisfaction quotient due to its main benefit – a transparent view of the products within the packaging, creating a fresh appeal to the consumer's eye. These factors are expected to contribute to the organic chicken market's growth in the coming years.

What is the Scope of Growth for Organic Chicken Manufacturers in India?

As the consumption of organic chicken grows rapidly around the world, manufacturers of organic chicken will have a better opportunity by producing more organic chicken, which will provide more health benefits after processed meat consumption.

Furthermore, rising meat consumption in emerging markets such as India will allow the manufacturer to produce more organic chicken in specific regions. A CAGR of 5% is projected for the market for organic chicken across India.

For instance, Zorabian, this farm, which includes the breeder farm and hatcheries, is subjected to a thorough inspection by an ISO team, which establishes the requirements for an organic chicken safety management system. Zorabian is an ISO 22000 certified organization, which means that the safety standards maintained at Zorabian are of the highest caliber and are updated on a regular basis in accordance with the ISO framework.
