MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

Foie gras is a delicacy made from the fatty liver of a duck or goose. However, several nations, including Italy, prohibit its manufacturing. Animals are fed “gavage” in order to obtain foie gras, which is a tube that continuously feeds the animal fatty meals in order to expand the size of the liver. It is estimated that about 80% of the world production takes place only in France, with a production of more than 20 thousand tons every year. Because it involves significant pain in animals, foie gras is one of the most divisive meals of animal origin in the world. Animal rights organizations around the world have long campaigned to stop the production of foie gras; in Italy, the campaign Stop foie gras by Essere Animali helped to ban its sale in supermarkets.

Despite recent production and distribution restrictions in some countries (including New York and California), the foie gras market was valued at USD 1168.7 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 1198.8 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 1.8 percent from 2021 to 2028, according to the latest market research. 

In Italy, as already said, it is forbidden the production but not the import and the trade, but with several limitation to reduce the consumption; Today in Italy foie gras is not available in any supermarket but it can still be bought in online shops of typical products and taste it freely in restaurants. It is a food in Italy that costs roughly 80-100 euros per kilo, indicating the difficulties of widespread consumption and indicating that it is not a food within the grasp of ordinary individuals. 

After the official banning of foie gras enacted in New York, where the measure will not take effect until 2022, it is time for foie gras production to become more ethical.

A study by researchers from Toulouse who would produce foie gras using bacteria to enlarge the liver of geese, thus avoiding the forced fattening, is working in that direction.

The process is very expensive and would lead to a significant increase in production costs but would avoid practices banned in the most globalized countries.
