Poultry Will Battle Other Healthful Alternatives for Share of Stomach



CHICAGO, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vegetarian, vegan and seafood options continue to increase on menus; however, due to the flexibility that poultry offers operators to create innovative and premium dishes?and its lower price relative to beef?poultry is well positioned to remain a popular choice. To retain poultry's share of stomach, operators and suppliers will need to emphasize chicken and turkey's healthfulness and affordability and menu innovative takes on traditional dishes to pique consumer interest.

"Bold and spicy flavors can be used to differentiate, especially combined with alternative preparations?like spicy ground turkey in tacos or rotisserie-style chicken flavored with dry rubs. Touting poultry's health and overall value will help justify poultry price points," explains Kelly Weikel, director of consumer insights at Technomic.
