World: OECD, FAO report says meat consumption will slow in high-income countries

Published Jul 12, 2023

Tridge summary

A report by the OECD and FAO suggests that meat consumption patterns in high-income countries are starting to stagnate, with changes mainly relating to the type and quality of meat consumed. The report also predicts that poultry meat will account for 41% of protein consumed from all meat sources by 2032, and that there may be a shrinking per capita meat consumption due to a shift in preferences. Consumers are increasingly concerned about animal welfare, the environment, and health issues, and poultry meat is seen as having the least carbon footprint.
