In Egypt, which is classified as a growth market, USSEC has been playing an important role in improving the performance of poultry production to lower the cost of production and to increase the consumption per capita. Government ownership in crushing as well as in poultry production will help for the time being to increase the level of protein consumption per capita per day in Egypt. Poultry and fish are the major consumers of soybean meal production in Egypt.
