Export delegation to Romania, poultry value chain, 10-13 October 2022, Bucharest, Focsani, Buzau


The Trade Council of the Danish Embassy in Romania, together with Danish Agriculture & Food Council, has the honour to invite you to participate in our networking delegation, promoting Danish poultry technology and expertise to the Romanian poultry producers.

The event will include visits at poultry companies (eggs and breeding farms), processing facilities and B2B meetings with customers as well as Romanian authorities involved in animal breeding.

This is a unique opportunity for you to meet the most important poultry production companies in Romania that currently cover 85% of the market.

Your input to the program is valuable to us: you can pinpoint companies to invite and visit.

Romania is breeding yearly over 300m heads of poultry yearly. 

Poultry meat accounts for 38% of the total meat demands, second after pork meat, with 48%. Nevertheless, the “gap” is getting smaller every year, mainly due to impact caused by the African Swine Fewer since 2018.

Poultry consumption has increased in Romania in the past few years at a higher level than in the EU, reaching 28 kg per capita, at a higher level than in the EU, with the chicken business covering 97-98% of the industry. There are over 540,000 tons of poultry consumed on a yearly basis.

These increasing numbers also require the industry stakeholders to adapt promptly with new knowledge and technology, especially since over 85% of the production is done in commercial farms (the rest is backyard production).

Romania has drastically improved its ways of doing agriculture in the past 30 years. 

Moreover, in order to align with the European Commission’s CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) goals, Romanian farmers can gain valuable knowledge from Danish farmers and companies related to the poultry industry.

This export delegation to Romania is an opportunity to meet and hear directly from top Romanian companies in the poultry industry about:

  • New business opportunities
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Operational costs at the farm
  • Higher standards for animal health
  • Operational efficiency
  • Reduction of emissions and water conservation

The goal of this visit is to get a first-hand experience of how poultry farming is conducted in Romania and to be able to pinpoint the challenges your company can help overcome. You get market insight directly from top key players in the industry as well as a great chance to eventually gain new customers. 

The format will be defined through visits at the farms and B2B meetings with the stakeholders in poultry farming. Most of the production facilities have their own processing facilities as well, making it easier to see both perspectives at once.

This can be an opportunity if your company works within production, services and solutions for:

  • Feeding
  • Additives
  • Housing Technology
  • Incubators
  • Hatching of day-old chicks
  • Breeding
  • Slaughterhouse equipment
  • Environmental solutions
  • Processing
  • Design, Management & AgTech
