Laying a good egg
While many industries are suffering under the threat of wholesale bypass, egg and poultry wholesaling has remained relatively calm. The industry is expected to experience stable growth over the next five years, as individuals become more aware of the health benefits of chicken and egg consumption. Moreover, operators will benefit from increased consolidation and technological improvements. The industry will shrink in terms of employment and wages, but solid demand will boost profitability in the long run.
This industry comprises companies whose major activity is wholesaling poultry and/or poultry products (except canned and packaged frozen). A business in this industry purchases the product from meat processors and sells them to retailers, generally with no further development and processing of the product. Businesses in this industry include third-party wholesalers and also manufacturers' sales branches and offices (MSBO), which are wholesaling divisions of meat processing companies.
