Key Market Trends

Beef Flavor Dominates the Market

Beef flavor holds the maximum share in the meat flavor market registering a promising growth rate. With world consumption of beef at 129.5 billion pounds in 2016, the demand for beef flavors in RTE products has increased and is likely to grow in the forecasted period. Uruguay, Argentina, Hong Kong, United States, Brazil, Paraguay, Australia, Canada, Kazakhstan, and Chile were the top ten countries across the world, with per capita beef consumption of more than 50 pounds in 2016. Owing to religious sentiments, the consumption of beef is banned in some countries, therefore beef flavors are used in finished products instead of beef.
