Fresh Meat

Meat departments remained among the few bright spots in the perishables category in supermarkets, Progressive Grocer found. Fresh meat sales increased by 4 percent to $55.3 billion in 2009. Trading down to less expensive cuts was a prevailing theme during 2009, with shoppers turning to family packs and bundled meat to stretch their food budgets.
