Sustainability’s Role in Evolving Consumer Preferences in Protein

June 20, 2023 | 2:00 PM ET

The global shift toward sustainability has not left the meat processing industry untouched. More than ever, consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of their dietary choices' impact on the environment. This has led to a growing demand for sustainably sourced meat products, particularly among younger generations.

During this webinar, we’ll explore why sustainable meat processing is vital not only for environmental conservation but also for meeting the evolving demands of future consumers. We will delve into why such efforts should be a top priority for the industry, from sourcing considerations to the potential for increased market share and profitability.

This webinar will also discuss consumer preferences towards ingredients in meat products and how preferences change among generations. In particular, we will focus on the rising trend of incorporating cleaner, more natural ingredients, like antioxidants, into meat products. They also represent a key way for processors to align their products with the values and preferences of younger consumers.

Join Corbion and the North American Meat Institute as we unpack the importance of sustainability in meat processing, how the meat industry is evolving to meet a more sustainable future and explore how embracing these initiatives can lead to greater consumer satisfaction and improved industry success.

Trends To Watch Out For In Protein

May 18th, 2023 | 1:00 PM ET

As inflation continues to pressure households across the United States, the ability to spend money has shifted, especially as it relates to food. As a result, consumers continue to purchase food for at-home consumption. Inflation has also taken its toll on total food sales volume, but that doesn't mean shoppers are walking away. During this webinar, we will explore trends in the protein category regarding consumer preferences for value, choice, channels shopped, and overall spending habits, as well as define points of success for manufacturers and retailers to increase consumer traffic in the protein space.

Alternative Inventory Financing To Support Strategic Initiatives

May 3, 2023 | 2:00 PM ET

Before being sold to wholesalers, processed and frozen meat is often stored for extended periods of time, tying up valuable capital that could otherwise be allocated toward strategic initiatives. Traditional loans or asset-based lines of credit may seem like the solution to captive cash, but they are costly and complicated. We understand that lack of capital, often due to inventory build-ups, can be the companies' biggest obstacle. Join us as we explore a cash flow solution that frees up capital tied up in inventory, allowing businesses to reallocate it toward strategic continuous improvement initiatives that may have been identified during the Protein PACT.
