Meat sales - both dollar values and volume - were significantly higher in 2020. Those gains, however, came at the expense of a crippled restaurant and food service industry that may take years to recover.

As much as 2020 has shown us being flexible is just as valuable as having plans, I still believe there is merit to taking a moment to reflect on some of the trends we’ve seen and how they may impact us moving forward.
With so many problems to overcome throughout the past year, most are eager to put 2020 behind us. Still, there were tremendous achievements made and even the storm clouds had silver linings that we should not overlook.
