In the turkey production segment, there is a low level of competition, so growing turkeys is attractive for investment.

The demand for this meat has been steadily increasing for many years. Over the past 30 years, its consumption has grown from 1.5 million tons to 5.5 million tons on the planet. Turkey meat is popular in Israel and the United States. Each resident of these countries eats respectively 12 kg and 8 kg of turkey per year.

One Ukrainian consumes only 200 g of this dietary meat. For comparison: the Pole eats 4.5 kg. But recently the profitability of turkey production in Ukraine is growing.
