Brazil has remained the dominant supplier of broiler meat to Saudi Arabia for over two decades. Brazilian chicken exports to the Kingdom reached 82 percent of total Saudi broiler meat imports, followed by France with 15 percent market share, and the US and Argentina each with 1 percent.

 

Meanwhile on the export side, FAS predicted that Saudi broiler meat exports for 2016 and 2017 will remain unchanged at 40,000 MT due to higher local demand, and the $533 per MT export tax that the government levies as reimbursement for the various subsides that local broiler meat producers receive from the Saudi government. The export tax makes Saudi broiler meat less competitive abroad compared to other suppliers.
