The newest release of my monthly consumer food demand survey (FooDS) is out.
A few findings:
- Willingness-to-pay for steaks and pork chops rose in August relative to July
- There was a fall in consumer awareness of news stories and concern for battery cages; there was also a fall in concern for "pink slime" and LFTB
- Price continues to be one of the most important food values, and the main challenge for the coming month is "finding affordable foods to fit my budget."
- Preferences for labeling related to GMOs and added growth hormones and antibiotics were similar to last month
