Highlights from the 2021 Chicken Marketing Summit:

During the pandemic, “30% of shoppers tried new cuts of meat and seafood, driving virtually all industry growth. 91% say they plan to continue to eat chicken at home in the months ahead, grilling more cuts and experimenting with different recipes,” according to new research presented at Chicken Marketing Summit. The 2021 edition of the executive conference was hosted by WATT Global Media on July 18-20, at the Omni Amelia Island Resort in Fernandina Beach, Florida.

The agenda included an exclusive presentation revealing the results of the 2021 Chicken Consumption Survey, which urges chicken marketers to innovate to meet the needs emerging from the pandemic. The survey results were presented by Chris DuBois, senior vice president and principal of IRI, and Joyce Neth, vice president, director of audience development and research with WATT Global Media.

In addition, the summit featured a lineup of 16 speakers and panelists who shared research and information on a variety of topics centered around this year’s theme, “Charting post-pandemic success.” Sessions included seven lessons chicken marketers learned during COVID-19, broiler welfare improvements, how COVID-19 shaped the future of chicken foodservice, how to sell solutions to innovate for the future success of chicken, and much more.

Presented by WATT Global Media in collaboration with the National Chicken Council, the annual Chicken Marketing Summit remains a member benefit for NCC processor and allied member companies, as well as members of the National Protein and Food Distributors Association.
