ROMANIA, POULTRY, Export delegation to Romania, 12-16 June, DEADLINE 24 APRIL

Danish Agriculture & Food Council and the Danish embassy in Bucharest hereby invite you to our delegation to Romania on 12-16 June with seminar and B2B meetings.

Join our export delegation to Romania with farm visits and B2B meetings!

Romania is one of the largest producers of poultry meat in the EU with the latest numbers indicating at 491 thousand tones, an annual breeding number of over 300 million heads and 1.6 billion eggs per year. The market has been expanding rapidly, driven by an increasing demand for poultry products both locally and internationally. 

The links between the Romanian and Danish poultry sectors are well-established, with several Danish companies already operating in Romania and collaborating with local producers.

The program will take place at the Novotel Hotel in the centre of Bucharest. The hotel will accommodate the planned seminars on Danish solutions and experiences within the poultry industry. You will present your solution in front of key poultry producers and processors, agriculture consultants, equipment distributors, agricultural and RRF funds consultants, agricultural science experts and stakeholders from the public authorities. After the seminar, you will have the opportunity to take part in B2B meetings with custom-made groups interested in your solution.

During the delegation, you will visit poultry farms and processing facilities around Bucharest, an opportunity to gain an understanding of local needs and your company’s export potential to Romania. Representatives from the Romanian poultry farms will share their insights into the market and their farm, as well as the challenges they are facing. This will be a great opportunity for the Danish companies to contribute with their know-how and technological solutions.

Participating in this delegation offers Danish companies many opportunities to enter the Romanian poultry market. 

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, 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 majority of poultry producers in Romania have fully integrated businesses - from animal breeding to their own slaughtering and packaging facilities, turning them into a one stop shop for business partners and solution providers.
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.

Additionally, the Romanian government is committed to developing and supporting the growth of the local poultry sector, which can provide opportunities for Danish companies to establish strong partnerships with local producers.
