With increasing regularity, farmers are coming to realize the importance of reaching out to consumers. And lately, they’ve taken to creating alliances to help them do so.
In the previous issue of this newsletter, we focused on the loin section of the hog—home to some of the most popular (and expensive) cuts of pork.
We now move to the shoulder, a cost-effective yet versatile cut—think pulled pork, braised blade roast and marinated pork satays.
Colourful displays bursting with fruits and vegetables, crusty artisan breads, decadent sweets, pungent cheeses, fresh local meats—walking through a Michael-Angelo's grocery store in either Markham or Mississauga has been compared to strolling through a Sunday market.
What does 2016 hold for Canada’s pork market? How much pork—and which cuts—are consumers eating at home? In restaurants? And what are they looking for when buying pork?
