Key Highlights

Males tend to consume Raw packaged Meat – whole cuts more often than females. While 32% of males record Heavy frequency consumption in this category, only 26% of females record the same frequency. Instead, females tend to record Medium frequency consumption: 31% of this gender compared with 26% of males. Marketers can grow the category by addressing this imbalance and increasing how often women eat Raw packaged Meat – whole cuts.

Older Consumers have a slightly above average consumption of Meat, recording a 22% share of the market by volume despite accounting for 19% of the population. This makes them the largest consumer group in the country, though the significant size of all other age groups indicates that marketers shouldn’t ignore these either.

The Busy Lives trend affects 20% of the value of the Raw packaged Meat – whole cuts category. This highlights how the preparation and consumption of these products provide moments of relaxation in consumers’ hectic lives, and suggests the value marketers can gain by targeting this trend.
