China lifts ban on U.S. poultry amid shortage of meat amid a recent outbreak of African swine fever, which damaged the pork livestock.

  • The shortfall across the pork livestock prompted China to seek alternative protein sources such as Chicken and Soybean.
  • China had banned all U.S. poultry and eggs in 2015 amid an avian influenza outbreak.
  • The second sought after protein source in China is Chicken, with a recent five-year average of 12.4 million tonnes, which is further anticipated by the industry experts to reach a record of 16.1 million tonnes by 2020.
