Meat Industry in China

Commodity markets have experienced considerable price increases over the past 12-18 months, and food prices are no exception.

Chief among the reasons are demographic shifts in other countries, primarily the growing middle class in places like China & India. This month we explore the Chinese meat industry, to get a look at what’s changing in this important part of the world.
