Pork Producers & Wholesalers Set To Brace For Demand Fluctuations

Global Rise in Demand for Pork Meat Products

According to RaboResearch, the demand for pork meat products is set to increase throughout the second half of 2022 and leading into 2023, across the world. The increase in demand is due to the fact that pork meat is seen as neither the most expensive nor the cheapest form of protein in the market, therefore consumption levels by consumers can fluctuate throughout the year. With the holiday season just around the corner, the demand for pork meat products is expected to increase as consumers will be looking to buy pork meat as a part of their holiday celebrations. Pork wholesalers are slowly preparing for the increased demand.

Why Are Consumers Choosing to Buy Pork Meat Products Instead of Meat and Poultry?

Pork meat products are seen to be one of the more affordable meat products to purchase when looking for a source of protein. Prices of red meat and poultry have been drastically increasing since the COVID-19 pandemic. While the price of pork meat products has also increased over the last 2 years, customers have turned to buying more pork as prices have stayed more affordable, in comparison to alternative meat products. Consumers and family’s disposable income has decreased since the pandemic, due to job loss and death, likely drove the increase in demand for pork meat products.
