About This Report


The Meat Wholesaling industry has faced relatively challenging conditions over recent years. Industry revenue has come under pressure from declining meat consumption, changing consumer trends and rising wholesale bypass. On top of this, the industry was rocked in early 2013 by the discovery of horsemeat in various products that were labelled as beef. This caused many to question their faith in food supply chains and incited calls for stricter testing and supervision of meat processing and distribution. It also encouraged further wholesale bypass by prompting supermarkets to take tighter control of their meat supply chains.

Operators in the Meat Wholesaling industry wholesale fresh and frozen meat and meat products. Businesses in this industry generally purchase meat from slaughterhouses and sell it to retailers such as grocery stores, butchers, restaurants and caterers. Wholesalers perform little or no additional processing beyond repackaging, instead focusing on storage and distribution.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
