The Poultry CRC’s major challenge is to help Australia achieve sustainable, ethical poultry production in the face of population growth and climate change.

The Poultry CRC conducts research and drives education and training to help Australia’s poultry industries produce more from less, sustainably.

This requires innovative approaches to:

  1. maintaining poultry health and enhancing bird welfare
  2. improving resource utilisation and reducing environmental impacts of poultry production
  3. controlling poultry product-associated food safety issues and enhancing egg quality for consumers

The Poultry CRC is an unincorporated joint venture between seven Essential Participants and is governed by a skills-based board. It manages its research and development programs through a public company, Poultry CRC Ltd. The Poultry CRC is headquartered at the University of New England in Armidale, New South Wales, and has an extensive collaborative network comprising researchers, educators and support staff from its participating organisations. The original Poultry CRC was established on 1 July 2003, with the current CRC an extension to 2017.
