The Board of Meats of Argentina has carried out a joint analysis of the four kinds of meat included and has arrived to the conclusion that the production of all the meats will reach 5.9 million tonnes in 2017, reaching a new historic record.

With this volume, the domestic consumption will have 5.1 million tonnes, that equate to 120 kg per inhabitant and year, the same amount as in 2016 and, once more, within the highest historic levels.

It is estimated that the supply in terms of each species will be as follows: 2,73 million tonnes of beef; 2,4 million tonnes of fowl; 750 thousand tonnes of pork; and 55 thousand tonnes of lamb.

The available volume of beef and fowl for exports represents an increase by 80% and will allow adding value at the point of origin, an additional income of USD1,500 million, the creation of new jobs and the increase in the collection of taxes by the State.

The Board of Meats of Argentina highlighted that these goals entail an unlimited compliance of the announced measures, such as the control of unreliability, the effective implementation of the refund of internal taxes (reimbursement), the changes in animal identification and traceability, amongst the measures that allow the improvement in competitiveness needed. The availability of supply has created the opportunity to keep a fluid supply in the domestic market and to initiate a aggressive action to recover and expand the international markets.
