Meat production in the Netherlands 2010-2018

Meat production in the Netherlands from 2010 to 2018 (in tons)

by Brigitte van de Pas, last edited Oct 21, 2019
Meat production in the Netherlands 2010-2018 In 2018, meat production in the Netherlands amounted to roughly 3.6 million tons. This was a slight decrease in comparison to the previous year and the second-highest volume reached in the period surveyed. That year, the country reached a self-sufficiently rate for fresh meat of nearly 260 percent, meaning the Netherlands produced much more meat than its inhabitants consumed.
 Pork most popular meat 

  Of the meat produced in the Netherlands, the majority consisted of pork. In 2018, pork production was over 1.8 million tons, or just over half of the total meat production. By comparison, the total production of sheep and goat meat that year amounted to just 20,000 tons combined.

Pork farms

  The roughly 1.9 million tons of pork produced in the Netherlands was the responsibility of some 4,300 companies with pigs. Between them, these companies had roughly 12.4 million animals, or an average of nearly 2,900 pigs per farm. In the last decade, the number of pigs per company more than doubled, from roughly 1,350 in 2007 to 2,883 now.
