Additionally, the yearly pork consumption amounts to just about 45,000 tonnes.

Moreover, the industry has also benefitted from advanced cold storage facilities in factories and the robust distribution processes. The Dawn Meats Group is one of the leading meat processing companies in the market, although the industry is highly fragmented.
