The latest issue of Meat Demand Trends takes a look at spending patterns which shows expenditure on meat for the third quarter of last year was seven per cent up on the previous year.

Looking more cosely at the figures, spending on fresh and frozen beef and lamb was up eight per cent compared with 2002 but there was only a one per cent rise in bacon and pork.

However, the rise in expenditure on processed meat products was much greater.

As well as these figures, Meat Demand Trends includes articles on both the decline in offal consumption in the UK and opportunities for butchers to get into supplying catering outlets.
