Fast-food producers in Russia indicate that shawarma prices are set to register an average increase of 10% to 15% starting from Sep-23. Retail chains specializing in shawarma production and sales attribute this price hike primarily to the increased chicken cost. Russia’s Ministry of Agriculture attributes the rise in poultry meat prices to seasonal factors and increased production costs, compounded by domestic tourism growth. According to Rosstat, chilled and frozen chicken prices surged by 11.5% year-on-year (YoY) in the first half of 2023, with Jul-23 registering a 6.99% YoY increase. Currently, the average chicken price stands at USD 2.05/kg.
According to the Vietnam Poultry Association, Vietnam’s poultry breed imports are expected to reach 3 million to 3.5 million birds annually from 2023 to 2030. In recent years, Vietnam consistently imported substantial numbers of chicken and duck breeds to support domestic production, with imports exceeding 3.8 million in 2021 and nearly 3.4 million chicken breeds in 2022.
