Let them eat steak

The fact that consumers are eating at home more often is spiking demand for premium cuts of steak, according to this Reuters report.

Statistics from last week’s Worldwide Food Expo show that grocery stores are offering aggressive specials and high-end steaks in promotions designed to bring more customers into their stores. According to Midan Marketing, sales of premium steaks are up 15 percent in the third quarter of 2009 compared to the previous year, and overall the sales of meat and poultry are up 12 percent.
