Opportunities for Global Fresh Organic Chicken Market Participants
The European region is estimated to have the largest market share by volume due to the presence of vast number of organic meat growers and eaters in the European countries. Since the trend of organic foods in European nations are souring sky high at present, the European market is also expected to be the frontrunner in terms of organic chicken production and growth rate.
The North American market accounts for the second largest market share after Europe, alas, it posts growing concern from the abrupt growth of vegan and plant-based foods that could create trouble for fresh organic chicken market players of North America.
However, presence of hard-core meat eaters in the North American market may project an optimistic scenario. The South Asian and East Asian markets are expected to follow suit at a much later phase but would offer loads of business opportunities to local framers and emerging players in the long run.
The Oceania region accounts for the largest production of global organic foods registering a 50% plus market share and since it lays quite ahead in terms of growth on the PLC curve, the market for fresh organic chicken in Oceania will project a moderate growth rate. MEA and Latin America regions are expected to portray the lowest growth rates.
The profession of raising animals and then killing them for food purpose causes animal suffering and threatens human health. The US Centres for Disease control and Prevention (CDC) states that more than 75% of emerging infectious diseases originate in animals.
Animals in the factory farms are crammed together in filthy and faeces-ridden conditions and are butchered on killing floors soaked with blood and other bodily fluids, creating a flourishing environment for pathogens and viruses. For prevention of outbreaks of animal-borne pandemics such as the alleged COVID-19 pandemic, the world could switch to plant based protein sources, ultimately leading to an upsurge in the plant based protein market share.
Also, according to WHO, coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in animals. For instance, SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV were transmitted by civet cats and dromedary camels respectively. Though there is no evidence that COVID-19 originated from an animal source, the consumers would be wise enough to abstain from buying animal and meat products from unhygienic retail outlets. The yearning for safer foods would ultimately create a trend of preferring healthier/organic food products over other unhealthy food products.
