Venezuela: Livestock and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   VE2021-0008

Since 2013, total meat consumption in Venezuela has declined 69.1 percent. However, a relatively better economic climate since 2019 has helped stabilized beef production and led to a significant recovery in chicken production. In 2021, beef production is forecast to remain stable at 266,150 MT, driven mainly by price stabilization. In 2021, chicken meat production is forecast to grow about 10 percent to 400,000 MT, driven by a more competitive price. Nevertheless, per capita meat consumption is still far from recovering and continues to be near historic lows.
