Let’s note that in Cameroon, beef consumption is gradually rising. In 2019 for instance, the country produced a little over 107,000 tons of beef, a study carried out by the Enterprises Upgrading Office of Cameroon reveals. That year, the volume of beef produced in the country even exceeded the volume of chicken, which was usually the most consumed in the country.
