Offbeat Meat

Bored with tradition, foodies place heavier emphasis on novelty fare

Implications - Today’s consumers are willing to take more risks and one area they are doing this is in food choice. A burger can mean much more than the average beef or chicken sandwich, as restaurants serve up lion, camel, snake and even “unicorn” meat. This increased interest in bizarre or novelty cuisine creates opportunity for unexplored product diversity within the food and hospitality industry.
