As people worldwide deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, never has food security been more important. Poultry meat is a critical component for food security and sustainability. In most countries poultry production, processing and distribution has been designated an essential service. Today above all other days, International Poultry Council congratulates all those in our industry in all corners of the globe, who continue to work to bring our nutritional products to customers and consumers.
Please take a moment to recognize World Poultry Day. If there is a celebration in your country or in your company, please share with: Nicolo@internationalpoultrycouncil.org.
World Poultry Day was first celebrated in 2012 in the IPC member country of Hungary, where it continues as an annual event. Since then other countries and IPC members (notably Colombia’s nationwide media campaign last year that recruits producer donations of poultry to food banks for distribution to vulnerable families) celebrate the event during the week of May 10.
