Study shows declining pork consumption in China

 

 

Chinese consumers are consuming more beef, mutton and seafood in their diets, according to Rabobank Group's study titled Dynamics of China's Pork Industry.

 

As a result, pork's share of total meat consumption slid to 65% in 2010 from 80% in 1985.

 

Despite soaring prices, pork remains the staple meat for Chinese consumers with per capita pork consumption increasing to 37.4 kilogrammes (82.3 lbs.) in 2010 from 25.8 kilogrammes (56.8 lbs.) in 1996. However, the slide in the share of pork consumption within total meat consumption is expected to continue in the future because of the faster growth of consumption of other meats.
