Report Sample Abstract
Countries such as India and Brazil are among world’s fastest growing economies; rise in per capita income is expected to shift dietary preferences towards protein rich diets. However meat consumption patterns will remain significantly different in various parts of the world, because of cultural, religious, and other consumer preference factors in different countries.
RISING AWARENESS REGARDING MEAT QUALITY & DAIRY PRODUCTS
Food safety has become an important issue for many governments around the world, especially in North America and Europe. Consumers around the world are now more aware and informed and giving importance to the extrinsic quality attributes of the meat they consume. Certain pathogenic and parasitic contaminations in meat products such as salmonella, listeria and E.coli, along with various disease outbreaks in livestock animals such as swine flu and foot and mouth disease in the past decade have raised concerns over meat quality and safety. For example, in January 2011 a meat quality issue rose in Germany, where cancer causing dioxin was found in meat products’ taking safety steps, many countries including South Korea and Slovakia banned pork imports from Germany due to the health risks involved. Use of animal feed additives such as antibiotics, enzymes and vitamins provides balanced nutrition to the animals and protects them against such harmful environmental influences. They also play an important role in overcoming issues related to animal feeding assurance, environment friendly meat production, and animal welfare.
