Inflation Is Rising — So Is the Demand for Quality Meats

Even among rising meat prices, consumers still seek quality meats. It’s more important than ever for retailers to offer high-quality products . Read on to discover why these habits haven’t changed and how Chairman’s Reserve® Meats can provide a competitive advantage.

Higher costs don’t decrease opportunities

Consumers are still willing to splurge at the meat case, specifically on premium beef and pork brands. This is true across all income levels, including lower income households and especially in the fresh category.1

Executives at other companies, such as PepsiCo and Walmart, said that consumers are aware of rising prices but have not made any dramatic shifts in purchasing behavior.2

Consumers from all income levels are willing to pay more for premium products.1

Experiences reign supreme:
why buying habits haven’t changed

Millennials value experiences and will purchase premium products for the memories they provide. According to IRI, even lower-income shoppers will purchase premium foods to reward themselves, to celebrate a special occasion or because they believe that the quality and value of food they cook themselves provide greater value than food prepared outside the home.1

Consumers will make sacrifices in other areas and be brand loyal to your meat department if you continue to show value and quality.3
