Meat, Beef & Poultry Processing in Florida
The Meat, Beef and Poultry Processing industry in Florida is expected to post modest growth over the five years to 2017. Industry operators are often subject to volatility relating to adverse weather conditions and potential disease outbreak. Additionally, due to volatile movements in animal feed prices, industry operators must engage in long term supply contracts to hedge against input price volatility, which can make or break any given operator's margins in a specific year. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is anticipated to maintain its speed. Industry growth is anticipated to be supported by stable demand from downstream operators, including wholesalers, meat markets, supermarkets and grocery stores.
Operators in this industry slaughter animals, process the carcasses and package the meat into products and by-products. The industry also purifies and refines animal fat, bones and meat scraps. Products are sold to other food manufacturers, renderers, grocery and meat wholesalers and retail traders. Establishments that mainly cut and pack meats from purchased carcasses are also included in this industry.
