According to estimates from The Barbecue Lab, there are over 826,000 restaurants and chains worldwide. Additionally, changing consumer lifestyles and busy schedules are causing a shift in preference toward quick, easy-to-prepare meat-based foods, further fueling the meat-based FPP market demand.

Meat-based FPP Market Growth Drivers & Restraints

The growing preference for convenient and protein-rich food options, especially among urban consumers, is one of the main factors propelling the demand for meat-based FPP. Additionally, aggressive marketing strategies, product innovations, and expanding distribution networks will contribute to industry expansion.

However, the growing awareness of health and environmental concerns related to meat consumption is leading to a shift towards plant-based alternatives, which may assert an adverse impact on the market forecast. Stringent government regulations and fluctuations in raw material costs may also impede market growth and profitability.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic's effects led to significant alterations and changes in the meat-based FPP market. The outbreak had an effect on consumer behavior across numerous industries, but most noticeably in the food industry, which ultimately led to disruptions in the worldwide supply chain. When the pandemic first started, there was an increase in demand for meat-based FPPs because people were storing and buying in a panic as they looked for long-lasting and wholesome food options. Restaurant and foodservice establishment closures and reduced operations as a result of the pandemic's prolonged duration also affected the demand for FPPs in those industries, creating issues for manufacturers and suppliers.

Meat-based FPP Market Trends

The notable surge in demand for healthier and cleaner-label meat products is emerging as a key industry trend, with consumers seeking options free from additives, preservatives, and artificial ingredients. In addition, the rise of flexitarian lifestyles is driving the development of hybrid meat and plant-based products to cater to consumers looking for more sustainable choices. Personalized and premium offerings, such as organic, grass-fed, and ethically sourced meats, are also gaining popularity, reflecting a growing focus on quality and transparency.  

In June 2023, BJ's Wholesale Club and Schnucks Markets teamed up with Verde Farms to offer 100% grass-fed and organic refrigerated burger patties. This partnership builds on the increasing demand for sustainable and healthier food options and highlights Verde Farms’ commitment to meeting this need by providing top-notch, organic meat products that promote a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, convenience remains a priority for consumers, further stimulating demand for pre-cooked and ready-to-eat meat-based further-processed products.
