Characteristics of Markets for Animal Feeds Raw Materials in the EAC
In 2014, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, the countries with the largest livestock industry in the region had a demand for animal feeds amounting to 6 million MT against production at only 1.7 million. This demand is expected to increase by 60% by 2020. As at 2014, the biggest demand for animal feeds was in Kenya the country with the largest and most dynamic animal feeds industry. However, future demand will be informed by Tanzania which will take up around 70% of the total projected demand.
Collective deficit in animal feeds in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda stood at 8 million MT and 5.3 million MT in 2013 and 2014 respectively against a backdrop of increasing demand during the same period. Ironically however, according to formal statistics in 2013, the three countries produced 1.36 million MT of cereal brans against a utilization capacity of 1.1 million MT while there was a surplus of 209,000 of oil seed cakes.
