Sustainability FAQS

Is chicken the most environmentally sustainable meat?

Lifecycle analysis of the Australian chicken meat industry confirms that commercial chicken meat production is the most environmentally sustainable for the production of land-based animal protein.

Does the chicken meat industry have a sustainability plan?

Despite already being the most sustainable land-based meat, the Australian chicken meat industry is actively working on determining meaningful and achievable ways to reduce our environmental impact and further improve the sustainability of the sector, with several initiatives already underway.  We are currently working with experts in our industry and our R&D provider AgriFutures on a project to develop a Chicken Meat Sustainability Strategy that will further showcase industry’s sustainability commitments and credentials.
