This report, written by William Roberts, Jr., a leading senior analyst in the food and drink sector, delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends in the US packaged red meat market and add expert context to the numbers.

While red meat has notoriously struggled with a less-than-healthy perception, despite accolades for protein content, the category has earned somewhat of an indulgent reputation in both a positive and a negative sense. More than seven in 10 category participants agree that quality is worth increased price, yet 4 in ten also indicate that environmental concerns influence consumption, calling for brands to find balance to address both.
