Increasing awareness of consumers towards quality meat products to drive the market growth
Consumers all over the globe are increasingly demanding quality meat due to the growing awareness regarding the nutritional dynamics of these products. According to The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), animals provide over 33% of protein consumed in human diets and around 16% of food energy. Besides, income growth, urbanization, and changes in lifestyles are the major factors impacting the demand for high-quality food. Consumers are now becoming more aware of the quality of food they consume, and the benefits associated with food products. As a result, the production of healthy and quality livestock has become important, leading to the surge in demand for quality feed with better palatability. Therefore, flavors and sweeteners products are anticipated to experience a robust demand in coming years.
Owing to the consumers’ rising demand for superior-quality meat products, high-end food service sector and supermarkets offering premium brands are now constantly demanding quality meat. This factor instigated livestock producers to provide quality and healthy livestock in order to satisfy the quality standards required by various food players and different markets across the globe. According to The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), “Exports to the European Union are largely high-quality products servicing the high-end food service sector and premium supermarket brands. The need to meet quality and import requirements results in processors sourcing cattle against stringent specifications. These import and quality requirements also mean that cattle producers specialize in preparing animals for the EU market to a certain extent.” To be able to fulfill such quality standards, livestock producers all over the world are emphasizing on animal diet as well as on food additives that increase the feed intake of livestock.
