In Ep. 77 of MeatingPod, we're talking regional economics and poultry industry best practices, with Holly Porter, executive director of the Delmarva Chicken Association. In May, the association shared its latest economic report on the region, which represents 12% of poultry production in the U.S. The data show that in 2021, the Delmarva chicken community raised 567 million chickens, produced 4.2 billion pounds of shelf- and table-ready chicken, and generated a record $4.2 billion dollars in wholesale value. In today's episode, we chat with Holly about the by-the-numbers report, and the insights it provides into the chicken industry’s important role in Delmarva’s economy.
