Report Overview

The global kosher beef market size was valued at USD 68.18 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2022 to 2030. The availability of the product with appropriate certifications has developed a trust factor among the consumers from countries including the U.S., Canada, France, South Korea, the U.K., Germany, and South Africa. Constant product innovation and collaborations by the meat processing companies are anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period. For instance, in August 2021, FreshDirect partnered with Cutting Edge Foods, manufacturer of Real Fresh Kosher Beef, for the purpose of direct sourcing. Such factors are likely to support the overall market growth over the forecast years.

U.S. kosher beef market size, by cuts, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the kosher beef industry. During the first wave of the pandemic, customers rushed to stock up on groceries, both in stores and online, while restaurants and foodservice businesses were largely closed in most nations. Due to the market volatility caused by COVID-19, grocery retailers were forced to restructure their supply chains, explore private label brands, and expand their supplier networks in order to meet consumer demand. However, many countries witnessed increased demand for beef, which resulted in an increased volume of exports. For instance, according to the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF), the U.S. beef sector witnessed an increase in market share in Japan, up from 41% in 2019 to 44% in 2020.

The increasing Jewish population around the world is the key factor supporting the overall market demand. According to the World Population Review 2021, the Jewish population in the U.S. was 6 million as of September 2021, which was 5.7 million in April 2021. This has been steering the demand for kosher beef. Around 39.5% of the Jewish population is settled in the U.S., making it one of the largest markets for kashrut food. The majority of Jews strictly adhere to kashrut not only at home but even outside their homes. This factor is likely to drive the demand for kosher beef during the forecast period.

Beef has become an essential part of the global diet. It is recognized for its various health benefits. The meat consists of amino acids vital for muscle building and tissue repair along with various enzymes that prevent illnesses. It has become the new diet food for the fitness conscious. The presence of a high amount of protein in the product reduces hunger pangs and leads to quicker weight loss. Red meat is rich in iron, which is easily absorbed by the body and ultimately enhances hemoglobin. It is medically recommended for people suffering from anemia. It also helps to cope with fatigue, weakness, peptic ulcer, and vulnerable immune system among other health conditions. These advantages are anticipated to fuel the product demand in the near future.

Jewish cuisine has become one of the hottest food trends in the world. This factor is attracting many organizations operating in the market to adopt kashrut foods in their product offerings. Many diners, restaurants, bakeries, and butchers, among others, offer kosher food including beef products. The companies operating in the market are anticipated to engage in innovation and new product launches to cater to the rising product demand. For instance, in April 2022, Prairie Street Prime, a New York-based company, started doorstep delivery offering glatt kosher meat for celebratory occasions like Passover. The product range includes short ribs, rib steaks, and roasts.

Cuts Insights

The loin segment held the largest revenue share of over 35.0% in 2021. These types of cuts are often prepared on the grill or under a broiler, barbequed, and smoked. Tenderloin, strip steak, T-bone and porterhouse steaks are some of the most preferred types of loin cuts. Similarly, roasted beef has emerged as a delicacy, especially among millennials, owing to its taste. Beef loins are marbled with fat, which imparts a rich, classic flavor during barbequing, grilling, and roasting. Chefs and cooks have been experimenting with them for long and thus, along with barbequing and roasting, kalbi, braising, and tenderizing have also been in trend.

Brisket is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR of 5.5% in terms of revenue from 2022 to 2030. Among barbecue connoisseurs, brisket is one of the famous cuts and is the key factor driving the segment. For instance, consumer demand for brisket in the U.S. has exploded over the past decade due to the popularity of Texas barbecue. Many companies and brands offering brisket have been launching new products in this segment to gain maximum traction among consumers. For instance, in October 2021, a fast-casual restaurant added smoked brisket to the menu of its more than 2,700 locations in the U.S. owing to increasing demand for brisket. 

Distribution channel Insights

Offline distribution channel held the largest revenue share of over 75.0% in 2021 owing to the easy availability of kosher food and the dependence of the common crowd and restaurants on local butcher houses, stores, and supermarkets on account of the instant availability and physical verification. Kosher slaughter is an extremely complex process and is mostly done manually. Consumers rely more on manually prepared meat than the one prepared using technology. Thus, constant supervision becomes easier with offline purchases. When it comes to buying beef, B2B customers prefer bulk orders to cut down the per-unit price. B2B customers generally sign a contract with the distributor since they require large quantities on a cyclic basis.

Global kosher beef market share, by distribution channel, 2021 (%)

The online segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 6.1% in terms of value from 2022 to 2030. The familiarity of millennials with smartphones, e-retailing, and e-shopping is expected to remain a favorable factor for the segment growth. To expand product visibility, especially in emerging markets, manufacturers are highlighting their products across online platforms, such as company-owned portals and e-retailing. Rapid digitalization across all aspects of e-commerce has positively affected the penetration of kosher beef across the globe. Furthermore, the gigantic assortment of a variety of kosher beef in different cuts and seasonings is only possible with online stores. Thus, a large part of the consumer base relies upon online distribution. E-retailers including AviGlatt.com and Grow & Behold Foods are some of the e-retailers acting as a catalyst to this growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest revenue share of over 45.0% in 2021. This region is the most dynamic market in terms of consumption of beef, especially in the countries such as Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Japan, and South Korea. However, ongoing shortages and pandemic-related labor shortages, specifically in the countries like China, are likely to support the increasing import of beef, with Australia remaining the biggest supplier. India is a key participant in the market as it is one of the largest exporters of beef and it exported about 2.83 billion pounds, ranking fourth globally in 2020, as per USDA’s statistics.

North America is the fastest-growing market as a result of the high concentration of the Jewish population in the U.S. Only 15% of the beef-eating population consumes Kosher because of religious reasons. Consumers in the region are increasingly opting for kosher beef due to its significant advantages such as better food safety and quality. Based on the USDA’s food availability data for 2019, an average American consumes about 55 pounds of beef per year. North America accounts for significant consumption of beef and related products, with the U.S. accounting for the majority share. Such positive population growth trends in the region are likely to support the overall demand over the forecast years.
