    • Global consumption of meat will increase 1.9% a year over the next decade as demand for protein in nations such as China, Mexico, and Brazil supports the market.
    • The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization forecasts that by 2030 the average person will eat close to 99 pounds of meat per year, compared to 86 pounds in 2007.
    • The steady rise in protein demand has underpinned a wave of merger activity in the food sector including Tyson Foods' takeover of Hillshire Brands and Shuanghui International's acquisition of Smithfield Foods.
