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...

REPORTER: Pork: Turbulence Driven by African Swine Fever 

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.

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...
