Poultry is set to become world’s most consumed protein

Poultry is set to become the world’s most consumed meat protein in 2019 as African swine fever spreads in pig herds across China. Delegates at the recent International Poultry Council (IPC) meeting heard how total world production of pork will decline in 2019 with poultry in position to wrest the crown from pork as the world’s most consumed meat protein. The upheaval in meat proteins is being driven by African swine fever (ASF) in pig herds in 3 continents and 15 countries. Production losses in 2019 are expected to amount to 14% of the world’s pork supply but may continue to move higher.

UK - Over the last year, the British Meat Processors Association together with Meat and Livestock Australia have jointly funded a project to provide independent research into whether a retail shelf-life of greater than 10 days can be applied to fresh chilled meat.
