Food Demand Survey (FooDS) - April 2014

The newest release of our Food Demand Survey is now up.

Willingness-to-pay for most meat products was up this month, and consumers reported that they anticipate buying about the same amount of chicken, beef, and pork as in previous months despite expectations of higher prices for all three.  

Reported expenditures on food at home and away from home were down in April relative to March.  

Consumers reported hearing more about Salmonella and E coli and less about pink slime and lean fine textured beef in the news in recent weeks as compared to last month.  Consumer concern dropped the most for GMOs and E. coli and rose the most for beta-agonist and bird flu.

We added a couple interesting ad-hoc questions I'll blog about in a separate post.
