Perdue Farms to Try Meatless Options


SALISBURY, MD
Thursday, September 6th, 2018

When’s the last time you ate meat? Or, maybe a better question is, how many times do you eat meat per week? Chances are, whether you’re an avid carnivore or an ambivalent omnivore, meat isn’t on every meal’s menu anymore. As more consumers substitute meat alternatives for chicken, turkey, beef, and pork, companies like Perdue Farms are making sure they stay on top of this eating trend.

One way Perdue is keeping up with consumer demand is by looking into offering non-meat protein products in addition to its chicken and turkey products, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Jim Perdue, Chairman, Perdue Farms “Our vision is to be the most trusted name in premium protein,” said Chairman Jim Perdue, according to Bloomberg. “It doesn’t say premium meat protein, just premium protein. That’s where consumers are going.”

Specifically, the company is considering adding smaller startup companies who excel at protein alternatives to its operations.

While Perdue Farms is looking to offer meatless proteins, Perdue noted that the company is interested in pure vegan options and/or options that combine meat with plant-based proteins and vegetables.

Major competitors like Cargill and Tyson have already hopped on the bandwagon of meatless proteins—will Perdue Farms’ foray into the world of meatless meats keep it afloat in an evolving market? Deli Market News will continue to keep an eye on all things deli, dairy, bakery, and specialty foods.
