Consumption of Animal-Source Foods in Ethiopia: Patterns, Changes, and Determinants

Using household consumption expenditure datasets that extend from 1995 to 2011, this report assesses animal source food (ASF) consumption patterns and changes over time in Ethiopia. The study reveals a number of stylized facts, including insights on the effects of prices and incomes on consumption of animal source foods. The findings suggest overall that keeping prices low and stimulating further income increases are important factors to increase ASF consumption in Ethiopia. The study further makes projections for growing consumption of ASF and its effects on markets.
