A consumer journey from America to Europe: Consumer expectations of the animal protein industry

Berit, Knut, or The Sorum Family - Norway's food industry created several personas for a simple reason. Understanding consumer preferences and behaviors. Something that is to consider in the feed industry as well– isn't it? As the headline reveals, I want to show you consumer mindsets, trends from around the globe.

America: Educational work would increase the demand for sustainable food

Many American consumers are interested in eating healthier and climate-friendly diets. However, numerous people are uncertain about the quality of the products.

A survey reveals, more than half of Americans think the production of beef, pork, dairy, or poultry contributes to global warming at least "a little." Still, only about one in four believe beef contributes "a lot."

A major trend is emerging in the dairy industry. Americans seem to drink less and less cow milk. The result: between 2003 and 2019, dairy farms licensed to sell milk has declined 50 percent to 34,000.

51% of Americans...

...surveyed said they would eat more plant-based foods if they had more information about their food choices' environmental impacts. 

Demographic changes are stirring up the industry in Latin America

Usually, the basis of traditional food and fast food in Latin America is meat. With increased income, people tend to consume more meat. Just as it is globally, consumer preferences also differ among generations in these countries.

Future generations in Chile, for example, are driving various food styles and trends:

  • Vegetarian and vegan
  • Preference for sustainable products and packaging
  • The quick and easy shopping experience, time is valued
  • Social and environmental responsibility of companies, priority for local entrepreneurs
  • The growing choice for healthy food and cooking at home as a social activity

Today, it is still a small market segment that stresses the importance of the industry's practices. Top earners look for animal welfare, for products without antibiotics or hormones.

The majority of Latin Americans...

...is "increasingly looking for ways to save money” and paying more attention to prices, actively looking for sales and promotions, or delaying purchases.

Health, climate change, and animal welfare drive Europe's food market

The EU annual meat consumption is projected to decline by 1.1 kg per capita by 2030. The ongoing animal welfare discussion in Germany and recent scandals in the industry have also contributed to this trend. Eating less meat seems popular, but the reality is more complicated.

In Ireland, for example, Millennials are looking for a healthier lifestyle. For them, it is very important to have a balanced diet, including fruits and vegetables, on their daily meals. They are unwilling to give up eating meat because they like it and believe meat is part of a balanced diet.

35% of EU citizens...

...are concerned about antibiotics, pesticides, environmental pollutants, and food additives.

Who are Berit and Knut, Thea, and the Sorum Family?

Thea: the young radical vegan activist (self-confident, green expert:
Thea is still going to school, extremely linked to social media, radical minded, Generation Z.

Berit and Knut: the couple living the traditional life.

The Sorum Family: the young, open-minded family into healthy hedonism.

I never saw myself doing this months ago, but because I'm happy and want others to find their peace of mind in their matrimonial homes or relationship I decided to share my encounter with Dr Ajayi. I've been married with three kids for 13 years and things were really great with my husband. About 3 years ago my husband started lying, cheating, womanizing outside our marriage and I wasn't comfortable with it, so I stayed one night thinking sleeplessly. I took my phone and was going online when I saw a write up which was titled. PROBLEMS THAT MOST PEOPLE COMMONLY HAVE IN MARRIAGE BEEN SOLVED BY DOCTOR AJAYI. I contacted him and discussed my marriage issues and he concluded that a spell was cast on my husband by another woman" whose husband is no more, so we went through the processes and some incantation was done to free my husband and this made my husband stopped his misconduct in our marriage and now my husband has been on his real self, this testimony is to advise people out there to never break up with their marriage but to look for solutions in the right places. you can contact Dr Ajayi on Whatsapp / Viber :+2347084887094 Or Email : drajayi1990@gmail.com for a lasting solution.

I Need A Real Spell Caster To Help Me Bring Back My Ex Lover Urgently 2022, WhatsApp +1(419)359-4367 He Is The Best Spell Caster Online And His Result Is 100% Guaranteed.

My Husband broke up with me after 9years of relationship. It started from small misunderstandings after which he told me that it would be good to take a break, which I think turned into a breakup. He no longer looks for me, he blocked my number and people said they saw him with another woman, this brought tears to my eyes because we are about to marry, I searched for help when I came across this spiritual man called PRIEST OSAS who have helped many people having relationship problem, I talked with him about my situation and he described to me the process to get back with my lover, I followed his instructions and today I'm happy because my man came back after 5 months of breakup and we are happily married now. If you need the help of a spell caster for any kind of relationship problem contact PRIEST OSAS for a lasting solution. EMAIL: Unsurpassed.solution@gmail.com

Life comes with different experiences I don't know what you have experience but this is my short testimony, I am happy typing this because I have peace in my marriage again and all thanks to a great man called Dr Peter, he is a powerful spell caster that help reconcile the dispute between me and my husband with a love spell, my husband left home and live with another woman for 7 months without caring for me and our 4 years daughter, financially I am fine but I need the tender care of a man, I beg him to come back home several times but nothing work out, I even asked his elder sister to help me beg him which didn't work out. So one day I read a testimony of a woman who described how Dr Peter helped her stop her husband from divorcing her with a love spell so I took his contact and explained my problems to him, he told me what is needed for the love spell and which I did so then after 48hours time my husband came back home begging for my forgiveness so that was how my marriage was saved. if you need his help do not hesitate to contact him on his Email: drpeterspellcaster21@gmail.com for any problem bothering your heart and he will get them solved for you, you can also contact him on his WhatsApp number +1 [984] 409-2762
