The Federation – mission statement and goals

The Zentralverband der Deutschen Geflügelwirtschaft e.V. (German Poultry Association) represents all role players and stakeholders in the poultry sector. It promotes and represents the interests of the entire poultry sector at the national level in respect of political and official bodies, as well as professional bodies, the public and overseas countries, and in doing so acts as a certified appraiser and expert advisor. 

The ZDG acts in the interests of the German poultry industry by fostering an ongoing and close liaison and exchange with all agricultural and economic organisations within the country and outside our borders. It promotes he exchange of ideas and experiences among members and promotes research and experimental activities, in addition to providing advice on production techniques, business administration and marketing or processing, with the aim of making the German poultry sector competitive, and ensuring that it remains competitive. 

The official mouthpiece of the Zentralverband der Deutschen Geflügelwirtschaft e.V. (ZDG) is the magazine for the poultry industry and the pig rearing sector.

When the ZMP stopped reporting, the publisher, Ulmer Verlag, took the initiative and established a service division in order to fill the gap and continue reporting on the egg and poultry sectors.
