Poultry producers have been encouraged to complete a survey outlining their production intentions. The NFU has opened its 2023 Poultry Production Intentions Survey, to assess how the challenges facing the sector, such as inflation and labour shortages, will affect production levels in the years to come.

NFU poultry board chair James Mottershead said: “As the NFU asks members to take part in this crucial survey, it is vital that we, as poultry farmers, seize this opportunity to make our voices heard. Your input to this survey will help shape future policy to support an innovative, progressive and profitable poultry sector.
“Over recent years, significant events have impacted the way we run our businesses. I’m aware that as a result of this, some producers have reduced production or exited the industry altogether, while others have plans to expand in the future.
“This survey will capture crucial data which will be used to inform our lobbying work. The results will be instrumental in driving meaningful discussions with key stakeholders, from the government to representatives right across the supply chain.
“Whether you are a poultry meat or egg producer, it’s vital you complete the survey to help strengthen our voice and work towards a resilient future for the sector so that we can continue to produce the high-quality poultry products that we provide to the nation.”
