According to the statistical data provided by the Simmons National Consumer Survey (NHCS) and the U.S. Census information, approximately 160 million Americans consume meat snacks and beef jerky on a regular basis.
Owing to the moisture removal process that it undergoes, beef jerky is tougher, has a more powerful flavor and is promoted as a nutritious, low calorie product, which is low in cholesterol and fat and high in protein and energy.
Also, since these bags are easy to open and close and protect against puncture or breakage, they serve perfect for hikers, bikers, and others with active lifestyles, and for consumers who frequently travel.
Building a sustainable beef processing supply chain has picked up as a trend for quite some time in the United States with the North American beef supply chain being already over 35% more efficient from a greenhouse gas (GHG) perspective than the global average.
Cargill, one of North America’s largest beef processors, has also expressed its commitment to achieve a 30% GHG intensity reduction across their North American beef supply chain by 2030.
