Namibia: Namibia’s Broiler Meat Consumption Expected to Increase Steadily

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Namibia consumes about 49,000 tons of beef, 40,000 tons of poultry meat and 6,000 tons of pork per annum. Approximately 50 percent of the Namibian broiler meat and pork market is supplied by the local producers, with the balance supplied by imports, mainly from South Africa. Post estimates that Namibian poultry imports will increase by about 3.5 percent annually, reaching 20,500 tons in 2017 and 21,200 tons in 2018. This expected growth in broiler meat imports will likely be driven by an increase in local demand. Compared to beef and pork, broiler meat is relatively affordable and is increasingly becoming an important protein source in the diet of many Namibians. The United States is currently working with Namibia to obtain full market access for poultry and poultry products.
