High Rearing Cost Stifles Growth in Organic Lamb Market

Organic lamb needs to be reared under extremely strict guidelines that depend on the regulatory bodies of the country. The livestock diet needs to contain feedstuff that is 100% organic and there can be no antibiotics or growth promotants fed to them. Along with this, extra care has to be taken of the livestock to adhere to these stringent guidelines and appropriate procedures have to be in place, making it an expensive and time-consuming process. This cost is naturally passed onto the final consumer, making the cost of organic lamb high and hampering the growth prospects of the organic lamb market.

Rearing Uncertainty and Trust Deficit Challenge in Organic Lamb Market

The rearing of organic lamb depends entirely on the health and wellbeing of the livestock. The prohibition of some medicines such as antibiotics can make livestock highly vulnerable and any sick or injured sheep treated with such medication cannot be sold in the organic lamb market. In addition to this, the high cost and low availability of organically certified feedstuff and forage is a constraint that needs to be overcome in the organic lamb market.

Furthermore, the poor organic certification infrastructure in emerging economies has resulted in customers there being uncertain of the quality and authenticity of organic lamb. Nonetheless, the APEJ processed lamb market alone is on track to push past US$ 30 million by 2027.
