thus, the annual forecast of the food and agriculture organization (FAO) of the United Nations to 2029, Russia’s role in the global meat market, despite the obvious advances in the development of cattle breeding, ignored, according to Russian industry experts.

According to forecasts of the FAO, meat production in Russia by 2029 will increase from 10.5 million total to 11.36 million tons, and exports – from 279 thousand to 338 thousand tonnes. Meanwhile, according to the “Center agrobaltika” of the Ministry of agriculture, only production of pork and poultry in Russia in 2020 could exceed 9 million tons. According to the FCS, in 2019, the volume of export of meat and meat products from Russia amounted to 341 thousand tons. For ten years the supply has increased more than 35 times. “In 2020, the expected increase in the production of livestock, including milk and meat. Data for the first five months of this year confirm this,” – said in late June the Minister of agriculture Dmitry Patrushev.

According to the head of the center for economic forecasting of Gazprombank Darya Snitko, pork production and meat exports (of all types) this year will reach the figures given in the FAO report on 2029. And the production of poultry meat will increase by 10 percent by 2025 – four years earlier than predicted FAO.

the head of the National meat Association Sergei Yushin says that today Russia is in the top 5 producers of poultry meat and fighting for 5-6 place in the production of pork. If in 2000 the volume of global meat production, Russia accounted for less than 2% now to 3.5%. This year, according to the Association estimates, the world market will be exported more than 400 thousand tons of meat and meat products in almost 40 countries. And in the next three years the country will put into operation new enterprises only in pig production with a total capacity of more than 1 million tons of pork in slaughter weight annually.

Yushin believes that Russia can become one of the most important suppliers of meat to the world market. All conditions for production of competitive and guaranteed safe products in our country, he said.
