This trend, also popularly referred to as “flexitarianism”, is being driven by four key concerns - health and wellness, animal welfare, environmental issues and tight finances. Euromonitor fresh food data show that over 2008-2013 fresh meat volumes declined by 2% in North America and remained stagnant in Western Europe.
