The meat, poultry, and seafood industries often compete for consumer
attention, yet share many of the same operating challenges. One of the
top concerns across all three industries is sanitation and product

With increasingly complex regulations, as well as a general lack of
qualified labor, the difficulty of ensuring proper sanitation compliance
is compounded.

Globally, the meat industry has seen steady gains as new markets open
that previously did not have regular access to meat. A growing middle
class in developing countries, the expansion of food safety regulations,
and an increasingly global trade network have allowed consumers in
developing markets to more regularly incorporate meat into their diet.

On a global level, poultry has seen similar gains to meat, as developing
countries adopt poultry more regularly into their diets.

There are shifting global perceptions regarding seafood that are poised
to benefit the industry. Origin naming, such as Alaskan Cod and
Norwegian Salmon, along with updated packaging, have helped revive
seafood's image as fresh and healthy.
