According to estimates by the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), sheep meat production in the EU stood at 95,000 tonnes in the first three months of 2024. This is a decrease of 4200 tonnes (4%) compared to the same period in 2023, with two of the main producers, Spain and Greece, experiencing a particularly marked decline. Spanish production was impacted by ongoing droughts, as evidenced by the 11% drop in production from January to March year-on-year. Greek production fell even more (-13%), to 9,900 tonnes in the year to date.
