Meat processing is an important sector of the food industry, which has a special impact on increasing the competitiveness of the national economy, but also on ensuring the food security of Romania. The tradition of raising animals and the processing of agri-food raw materials can ensure the need for raw materials, satisfying the internal consumption, but also making income for the meat processing company in Romania. The meat market, at national level, is in deficit, being dependent on meat imports, while on the export live animals are valued, with a low added value. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the current situation in the meat processing sector in terms of production, consumption per capita and meat imports and exports, comparing with the number of meat processing units. The study highlights the decrease in domestic meat production of poultry, pigs and cattle, except for the production of sheep and goats that is increasing, between 2015 and 2017, where in beef production decreased by 18.99%, pork production decreased by 3.85%, poultry meat production decreased by 4.58%, and in sheep and goat meat production increased by 5.86%. Imports of meat from the analyzed species are increasing, also the consumption of meat per capita is increasing, but also the companies in the field of meat processing are increasing.
