Household consumption of beef, pork and chicken all rose

According to the USDA's most recent Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) report, household consumption for meat products among Japanese consumers and the strong preference for home-meals during the global pandemic were both notable highlights for 2022.

Recent data released from The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries announced the breakdown of meat consumption (by setting and use) in 2020.

While the percentage of household consumption in Japan increased for all livestock species such as beef, pork, and chicken, the percentage of meat consumption in restaurants and other food service establishments decreased across the board.

This report confirms how the early COVID-19 environment had an impact on the hotel, restaurant and institutional sector with consumers shifting to increased retail purchases of meat products for household consumption.
