Global meat consumption to grow by 1.8%

Global meat consumption is expected to grow by 1.8% from 2023 to 2024, while UK red meat exports hit record levels in 2022 with a value of £1.7 billion.

Nicholas Safir, chair of AHDB, addresses delegates at the levy board’s recent Export Conference.

This was part of the message from Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) chair, Nicholas Saphir speaking at the levy board’s recent Export Conference, held at Butchers’ Hall.

Saphir said: “Our exporters and colleagues in Government should be congratulated on the fabulous job done in driving export growth for UK agri-food which is reflected in the figures from 2022.

“It is, however, imperative to maintain the momentum and build on this success. With the anticipated growth in global meat and dairy consumption, now is a pivotal moment for more UK exporters to seize on the export opportunities presented.”

He continued: “The Government’s pledge at its recent Farm to Fork summit was very encouraging and will complement AHDB’s £8 million annual investment in exports to facilitate trade and grow our reputation as a producer of quality, safe and wholesome food.”

A new strategy, Beyond Borders, was unveiled at the conference, aimed at delivering enhanced services to help more exporters maximise the global potential for high quality domestic produce.

The strategy sets out plans to encourage more businesses to develop their export potential with the help of AHDB services.
