Beef & Pork Wholesaling in the US
Over the past five years, downstream demand for beef and pork decreased due to the recession's lingering effects. Instead of buying fresh red meat included in this industry's product offerings, some consumers switched to meat products outside this industry's scope. However, the industry is projected to experience revenue growth over the five years to 2021 as the economy strengthens. Per capita disposable income is projected to increase as employment levels recuperate and consumers regain confidence in the economy. As a result, Americans will slowly increase spending and consumption, subsequently increasing demand for pork and beef throughout downstream markets.
Operators in this industry wholesale beef, pork and other red meat products. There are two types of wholesalers that execute the industry’s activities. One type is merchant wholesalers, which include independent wholesaling operations. The other includes manufacturers’ sales branches and offices, which represent the wholesale division of vertically integrated meat processors. Canned and packaged frozen goods are excluded from this industry, as are poultry and seafood products.
