Analysts reckon that per capita meat consumption is set to increase in the UAE thanks to population growth and high living standards. By some estimates, it is forecast to reach 79 kg by 2019, ranking the country 7th in the world – ahead of Ireland, Australasia and Australia.

This means that concurrent with demand, domestic production and imports, which account for much of the supply, will have to go up.

To meet the population’s growing needs in meat products, the UAE has been investing in a thriving livestock sector. It is estimated that there are several millions of livestock in the country.

However, livestock farming in the country depends in large part on imported animal feed as water scarcity and salinity make it difficult to produce enough forage locally
