DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--The "2017 Trends Shaping Meat, Poultry and Seafood" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The 2017 Trends Shaping Meat, Poultry, and Seafood Market Segment Report focuses on the operational changes and future equipment needs in the processing and packaging of meat, poultry, and seafood products.

Categories represented include fresh, frozen, canned, deli, ready- to-eat (RTE), individual quick frozen (IQF), and preserved.

The report analyzes intelligence from the experiences and opinions of professionals in manufacturing, operations, engineering, maintenance, processing, packaging, senior management, and procurement.

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 contamination.

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.
