Food Demand Survey - August 2013

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
