The International Food Technology, Additives and Ingredients Trade Fair will have its 14th edition next September in Buenos Aires and it promises to exceed previous years results.
One of the strongest sectors within the event, meat processing, expects to show the good figures exhibited by the sector in the last months.
According to a recent report of the Argentine Chamber of Meat Industry and Commerce (CICCRA), the domestic consumption of beef increased 9.2% in the last twelve months, with an average of 58.8 kilos per inhabitant per year.
Besides, the slaughter also increased an 11.8% compared to the first two-month period of 2017. Only in February, 236,000 tons of bone-in beef, thus meaning an 18.6% increase. According to CICCRA, it was the fifth best February of the last 23 years.
The participation of the domestic consumption in the meat production total was of 88.5% in the first two-month period of 2018, thus showing an increase of exports (driven by the Chinese demand). The domestic market would have absorbed 64.2% of the total increase in beef production.
We follow all the sector figures carefully and, of course, positive indicators as these ones generate lots of expectations in us [...] in the 2016 edition, we have already seen a change in the business atmosphere generated by the exhibition, but it was still not seen clearly in the industry figures. This year I believe the two things will be seen, good mood in business professionals and concrete business
