Retail Meat New Zealand Conference Terrace Downs March 2011 An update to Industry Rod Slater
Research A research project was carried out in December 2010 to assist in the development of the Strategic Plan. Main Objective To gain insight into consumers’ purchasing behaviour and attitudes towards meat (including fish) on the domestic market and ascertain how beef and lamb perform within the category. Further research will be carried out over the next five years to track progress.
Research – Top Line Results Lamb is viewed as a ‘special occasion’ meal ; not an everyday meal Consumer knowledge of beef and lamb cuts and cooking is a barrier to purchase Shoppers say health and nutrition is still a significant influence in their purchasing decisions Lamb is not seen as value for money Beef is seen as good value for money, with the exception of premium end steaks
