Production, Processing and Preserving of Red Meat


Having not completely recovered from the 2015 and 2017 drought, which led to a shortage of red meat, the red meat sector has been struck by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic and the declaration of a state of emergency and lockdown. Despite expectations of a significant economic contraction, the sector has mostly been able to weather the challenges introduced by the pandemic, and meat production is expected to increase marginally in 2020. The sector was affected by the initial closure of hotels, restaurants and takeaways and ban on hot food sales. Economic concerns led many people to reduce consumption of high-priced red meat items.


Imports and Exports


Brazil supplied 32% of South Africa’s imported meat products in 2019, followed by the US, Poland and Germany, with poultry making up 72% of the value. South Africa’s agricultural exports fell in 2019, partly affected by the drought and the outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease at the start of the year. Between 2012 and 2019, meat exports grew 30%, with the biggest export markets outside of Africa being the Middle East and China. Beef accounted for 48% of meat exports in 2019, poultry 33% and pork 10%.
