The current prices for local red meat stand at JD9 to JD10 per kilogram, with imported varieties of fresh, frozen, and chilled red meat priced differently based on their country of origin.

Data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) shows that the average Jordanian consumes approximately 38kg of red meat annually, making them the sixth-highest consumers of red meat in the Arab world.

Despite a 4.2 percent increase in the general price index for consumer prices during the first 11 months of 2022, red meat prices saw a dip of 1.8 percent in October due to lower demand.
