In the global food & beverage industry, innovation and new product creations are based on strong natural, health, and sustainability credentials. Products made with healthy and nutritious components and labeled with assurances of minimal processing or demonstrable health benefits from natural ingredients appeal more to consumers, especially in developed economies with higher incomes and an aging population.

Due to rising affluence and healthy eating trends, emerging countries such as China and India are likely to play a significant role in the global meat and poultry sector. Because they are sold by well-established corporations such as the WH Group in China and Godrej Tyson Foods Ltd in India, packaged processed beef products are deemed hygienic and of good quality. These manufacturers have gradually moved their focus from shelf-stable processed meat to chilled processed meat in response to increased consumer demand for more fresh and healthful processed meat products.

Increased Demand for Essential Nutrition Driving Global Market

In the context of overall consumer attitude, processed meats continue to play an essential role in consumers’ diets. Protein is a developing topic of nutritional study, and meat remains the most popular source of protein among consumers. Although vegetarian diets and movements receive a lot of media attention (Meatless Monday, for example), according to a recent Fact.MR survey, just about 3% of consumers omit meat from their diet for a 14-day period. However, meat appears to be utilized more as an ingredient and less as a main dish these days, as the percentage of meals containing meat has steadily fallen, reaching 26% in 2019.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the meat production and supply chain. Hotels, restaurants, and cafes play an important role in the distribution channel of the processed meat market. Most importantly, the quick service restaurant chains such as McDonalds, KFC, Subway, and Burger King were all compelled to temporarily or permanently close during the COVID-19 period. Dine-in facilities were limited for customers at these restaurant chains. The cafes were completely closed, while the hotels were closed owing to travel restrictions. The global processed meat market experienced revenue losses during the lockdown period due to the non-operation of this important distribution channel.
