Understanding the current and future opportunities and barriers to continued consumer demands for chicken meat can help inform the planning and development of the industry, its companies and their products. This project aims to use a variety of new and previous techniques to survey Australian consumers, to provide insights into decision-making behaviour related to chicken meat.
Future market demand and barriers for the chicken industry will be assessed by comparing recent and past surveys to provide a deeper understanding of the drivers of chicken meat consumption, which will inform projections of chicken meat consumption. The outcomes of these surveys will be compiled into a report for use by Australian chicken meat companies to identify opportunities to add value to their businesses now, and in the future.
