REPORTER: From Fast Food to Halal, Mennella’s Poultry Does it All

Entering its 75th year in business, Mennella’s Poultry is a third-generation meat distributor in Paterson, New Jersey.

In 1964 the World’s Fair came to New York, and Mennella’s Poultry was hired by Chicken Delight to deliver products to the fair.

REPORTER: Artificial Intelligence: Paving the Way Towards More Efficient Poultry Production

REPORTER: Export Sales and Processing Capacity Critical Issues for U.S. Pork, Beef Industries 

This article was originally featured in the Winter 2020 Edition of Urner Barry's Reporter magazine.

Looking back on the events of 2019 makes it clear just how important export sales and having adequate processing capacity are for the U.S. pork and beef markets.

The cattle markets were rolling along through the spring and into the summer with one of the strongest demand periods in recent years.

REPORTER: Beef Demand Remains Strong in the Face of Growing Supplies 

This article was originally featured in the Summer 2019 Edition of Urner Barry's Reporter magazine.
 
 
It is incredible to see how beef continues to see strong demand throughout the world.

This has led to wage pressure and consumers have more money in their pockets to spend as a result. This is important as increased protein consumption...

This article was originally featured in the Summer 2019 Edition of Urner Barry's Reporter magazine.
 
 
August 2018 marked the first reported case of African Swine Fever in China during this current outbreak. Since then, the virus has spread to every province of the country, resulting in massive livestock losses. This culling of the country’s most consumed meat has created uncertainty across all proteins, not just pork, for a number of reasons. For one, China consumes just 8% less pork than what all other countries combined produce. Also, the world’s combined pork exports would...

An Appreciation of the Arby’s Tagline

Leroy and Forrest Raffel opened their first sandwich shop, R-B, in Boardman, Ohio, on July 23, 1964. The Raffel brothers were determined to break into the fast food industry with a fresh take in the wake of burger joint comeuppances. Armed with the knowledge that they could fade away if they opened “just another burger joint,” the Raffels instead built their dream on heaping stacks of fresh sliced hot roast beef atop fluffy, delicious bread. These sandwiches, along with chips, extra-large iced teas, and soft drinks, comprised...

Hooked on Sustainability

I sat in a minimally furnished room in an office-cum-apartment across from Ben Turley, butcher and businessman. It was Thursday. Brooklyn was bustling and shrouded in grey. Horns and sirens outside cut through the din and the damp and down Graham Ave, wafting through the mist and the walls as muffled echoes. Cool light was leaking in from the windows. Ben brought a thermos of coffee, and had a tattoo on his arm, “Let’s party. Together.” I sat down with him to talk about The Meat Hook.

The Meat Hook is a sustainable, nose-to-tail butcher shop founded in early 2010 by Turley and Brent Young. What makes The Meat Hook special is a deep commitment to healthy farms, happy farmers, and healthy, happy, tasty animals. Not to mention their...

Proposition 12 Establishes New Standards for the CA Egg Market

In November 2018, California voters passed a ballot initiative that will once again change the landscape of egg production in the state and for those around the country looking to send eggs and egg products into the area. It will establish new space requirements for egg laying hens, in addition to setting new minimum requirements for calves raised for veal and breeding pigs.

The initiative will be phased in over the next two years. It will require producers to keep egg-laying hens in cages with...
