Chapter synopsis: Poultry, beef, mutton and goat meat remain important components in the human diet, making food losses and waste (FLW) in livestock production a serious issue in terms of food security as well as economic and environmental sustainability. This chapter reviews the extent of FLW affecting meat and the key areas where losses and waste occur. There is a particular focus on poultry and beef and on losses at different stages of the supply chain, from animal production on the farm through to transport, slaughter, distribution through the cold chain and consumption.
