Key Market Trends

Growing Consumer Preference Towards Animal Sourced Products

The growing population along with changing food habits have driven the meat industry market. Meat products are growing rapidly due to high-quality protein, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. Additionally, meeting the demands of the meat processing industry by livestock farmers, producing high quality and hygienic meat, is a big challenge faced by them. According to OECD poultry meat consumption in the United Kingdom was 27.8 in 2016 which increased to 28.3 in 2019. Pork is the second most-consumed meat with per capita consumption of 17 kg in 2019. The growing demand for animal products and processed meat has created an opportunity for feed manufacturers to enhance the productivity of animals. Farmers are relying on feeds to obtain high performance and quick weight-gaining animals in a short period.
