Meat Consumption Flat

Meat consumption in Russia will be unchanged this year after beef prices climbed in the country and worldwide, Sergei Yushin, head of the National Meat Association's executive committee, said Friday, citing State Statistics Service figures.

Consumption was about 67 kilograms per capita last year. While Russians will eat less beef after 18 months of price gains, consumption is set to gain by 2 percent to 3 percent for pork and remain stable for poultry, Yushin said.

National output may rise 4 percent to 5 percent this year for pork, drop 2 percent to 3 percent for beef and gain 7 percent to 8 percent for poultry, Yushin said. Russia produced 739,000 tons of pork last year, 199,000 tons of beef and 2.74 million tons of poultry, according to the State Statistics Service.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
