In recent 30 years, China's meat industry has developed very fast and its productive value amounts to 1300 billion RMB. It is a pillar industry for agricultural products process and food processing, and a critical support point and breakthrough point for the reform of the supply side of animal husbandry as well. As economic and social development, meat nutrition and human health have been paid more and more attention. In this paper, China's meat industry and relevant national strategies were reviewed, and events that happened in developed countries were summarized. Several key scientific and technological questions were put forward on meat nutrition and human health during the period from 2020 to 2035. A new strategy including targets, roads, tasks, and measures, is proposed to start key basic research, key technology development, and key product design on meat nutrition and human health, which attaches the importance to leading the development of animal husbandry, meat industry, and healthy food industry, and to improve Chinese people health status.
