Depuis la fin des années 1990, la production camerounaise de poulet de chair est fortement concurrencée par les importations à bas prix de poulet congelé en provenance du Brésil ou d’Europe, entraînant une crise de la filière. Une enquête réalisée à Yaoundé a montré les différences d’attributs de consommation des poulets locaux versus importés. Sur cette base, cet article développe une approche originale des déterminants de la consommation urbaine de poulet au Cameroun en utilisant la « Characteristics’ theory » de Lancaster (1966a). Appliqué au cas de la consommation de poulet au Cameroun, ce cadre d’analyse est utilisé pour représenter les effets de deux leviers d’action en faveur de la reconquête du marché intérieur du poulet local : l’adaptation de la filière avicole aux attentes des consommateurs et une campagne de sensibilisation ciblée. Les apports et limites de ce travail sont enfin discutés, afin d’en dégager des conclusions et perspectives.
