Price may still be king in shaping American consumer demand for meat products, but its influence is waning as buyers seek more information on sourcing and preparation, according to key industry surveys and multiple retail insiders.


This trend is apparent across all retail sectors, from supermarkets to club stores to butchers’ shops, according to a comprehensive 2014 survey published by the American Meat Institute (AMI).
