More meat consumed in developing nations
The global outlook for meat is increasingly characterised by rising
production and consumption trends of developing countries, according to the
'Agricultural Outlook' report from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and
Development and the FAO.
By 2016, the report estimates world meat production to grow by 1.7% a year
due to production expansion in Brazil, China and India. With trade recovering
from disease outbreaks in many important countries, the major meat exporters are
seen as Brazil, the US, Canada, Argentina and Australia. Most expansion will
occur in Asia and the Pacific region dominated by pig meat growth. However, the
report said the US will remain the largest meat importer.
dependency in meat producing countries will also likely grow as countries reach
their capacity to produce.
