Kazakhstan meat industry analysis: Import substitution, delivery and statistics

Effective management of food safety and product quality issues is critical for maintaining and enhancing the competitiveness of livestock production. Food safety and quality standards are now and will become increasingly important for the competitiveness of livestock products. For most producers and processors of livestock products, as well as for most livestock products, domestic demand remains the main, if not the only, driving mechanism for market improvements in food safety and quality. Better imports entering the market already indicate the need to raise standards, at least to maintain domestic market share, as well as to achieve import substitution or appeal to export markets. International experience shows that the implementation of quality standards should be stimulated by the private sector, but not by the government. However, the government plays an important role in improving the skills of veterinarians and providing advisory services to help livestock producers and processors meet the ISO (International Organization of Standardization) and the CCPHA (Critical Control Point of hazard analysis) standards. In other to create conditions for the prosperity of the livestock industry, the government needs to pay more attention to the following two key areas: reducing market costs and prudent management of food safety and quality of livestock products. With the transition to more dispersed cattle breeding, the cost of re–establishing links between scattered and small livestock producers and consumers, local or foreign, has increased. But such costs can be reduced. To ensure food safety, meet consumer requirements and increase the ability to compete with imports, domestic producers need to strengthen their capacity to achieve higher standards of safety and quality. Attention should be paid to such instruments of the import substitution strategy as an active industrial policy, trade protection and export promotion. The purpose of this study is to analyze the meat industry of Kazakhstan, to present the problems that the industry is facing at the present stage and direct their solutions and the tasks of the state in this mechanism. The scientific novelty of the study lies in the development of measures to develop policies in the field of the meat industry in the context of import–substituting policies and the development of appropriate organizational and economic tools for their implementation. © Entrepreneurship and Sustainability Center.
