The first half of 2020 saw an increase in at-home meals which resulted in 48% of consumers buying more meat. 
Nearly two-thirds of consumers said their knowledge about meat and cooking meat has improved since March. Innovations will pay off as consumers experiment due to meat shortages. 
The lockdown drew consumers towards online shopping, however 52% of consumers confirm that they would return to their pre-pandemic meat shopping habits. 
As the purchase of meats increased, meat-eaters and flexitarians became comfortable buying other meat cuts when their preferred cuts were not available. While it became clear that plant-based substitutes were popular among the vegetarians. 

The fresh meat category was helped by the “halo effect” of lockdown, which resulted in consumers wanting more comfort food. That trend has put meat firmly at the centre of the dinner table.
