The general push towards clean labeling has also affected the meat industry. Alternative curing processes — caused from consumer disdain towards nitrates/nitrites — and removing caramel coloring and artificial flavors are just a few of the current buzz topics in the industrial meat industry.
In addition to ingredient restrictions, Marketing demands have also steered many decisions in the meat industry in the past decade. Consumer intrigue and demand for local, sustainable best practices with animal husbandry has shifted the ethics and direction of many meat companies, putting them under a magnifying glass.
