The meat and poultry industry must position itself for the future in the tense relationship between several megatrends: livestock farming already takes up almost half of the world's land area. It is therefore directly affected by changes in the global climate, declining soil fertility and water scarcity. In addition, global crises and conflicts threaten the stability of supply chains and ensure high price volatility for feed and fertilizers. At the same time, livestock farming is also at the center of the global trend towards ecologically farming. Consumers as well as national and international legislators expect animal welfare and fair working conditions to be prioritized and made transparent throughout the entire production chain.
Last but not least, changes in consumer behavior have led to a massive decline in meat consumption in western industrialized nations in recent years - in favor of a growing demand for plant-based or fermented meat substitutes. The industry must respond to these trends and risks with effective, integrated concepts that integrate targeted innovations, a high level of process excellence, optimized production along the entire chain from farm to fork and the sensible use of technology.
