USAgNet - 11/19/2020

Throughout the last year, Americans have been relying on chicken as a healthy and convenient protein that can be enjoyed by everyone. In fact, 75% of Americans who eat any chicken say they prepare chicken at home at least once a week. During the past 9 months of COVID-19, retail chicken sales have increased $1.3 billion, up 19.5% from the same period last year, according to IRI and 210 Analytics.

The National Chicken Council unveiled the findings of a new survey fielded with the goal of better understanding chicken consumption trends and preferences in the United States.

The survey includes insight into the impact of the pandemic on chicken consumption habits, showing that half of Americans who eat chicken say they have eaten it more than any other protein during COVID-19.

Nearly half of survey respondents say they increased the amount of chicken they prepared at home during the pandemic, while 39% said they increased the ways they prepare chicken.
