The demand for pork is increasing in South Africa

South Africans love pork. At least that’s what can be deduced from a study called Evaluating the South African pork value chain. An overview of the South African pork market despite the harsh economic times we’re facing, meat consumption has increased, with pork being the second-most consumed meat in the country.

Economic factors that influence pork meat demand

According to the overview, the main economic driver that influences the demand for pork is its price in relation to other meat products “more than 65% of the pork consumed in South Africa is by established consumers in LSM groups 8 – 10 (high income-earning groups).”

Non-economic factors that influence pork meat demand

The study shows the factors that influence consumer demand for processed pork products.

  • Novelty (new and different, modernised and value-added)
  • Quality (taste, tenderness, physical attractiveness)
  • Simplicity (quick, fast, uncomplicated)
  • Convenience (easy to prepare and serve)
  • Health and Safety
  • Consistency (similarity in appearance and eating experience)

“The contribution of non-economic factors to explaining pork demand in

South Africa is as high as 70%, compared to a 30% contribution from price and income factors,” the study states.
