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.
