Abstract
The small ruminants comprise of sheep and goats and contribute about 30% of the total red meat consumed in Kenya. The “livestock revolution" is projected to double meat consumptions in developing countries, by the year 2020 compared to 1993. The per capita consumption of livestock products is rising fastest in regions where there is urbanization and rapid income growth as people add variety to their diets. Urban consumers being the key movers of small ruminants meat demand, the study explored the patterns and drivers of small ruminants' meat among Nairobi consumers.
