In 2020, pork consumption in Russia hit 27 kg per capita – the highest level in the past 30 years, a research conducted by the Russian state-owned bank Rosselhozbank showed.

 

The overall demand for pork on the Russian market last year climbed 4% compared to 2019 to 4.08 million tonnes, according to calculations by Rosselhozbank. Pork accounts for 36% of the meat consumption in Russia, lagging behind only poultry with 44%, the bank reported.

 

The growth is likely to continue and pork consumption is expected to grow by 3% in 2021, Andrey Dalnov, head of the Rosselhozbank’s industry expertise center, said.
