2022 was another year full of new products, new shopping developments, and delicious memories. As we look forward to 2023, we recap the past year while gearing up for the new year ahead.
This year was all about giving the gift of meat! From gift baskets to entertaining classics like charcuterie board essentials and fancy summer hot dog recipes, Denver Meat Co was happy to have to be part of your family during the best of times this 2022. We’ve explored the history of the American summer BBQ, the history of meat products, ring bologna, and more! We were also excited to announce our partnership to PA General Store, allowing us to offer online ordering and efficient shipping nationwide.
According to a market outlook from the USDA, US customers can anticipate a greater availability of pork, broiler meats, and turkey in 2023. This is a great sign for meat product producers like us. Meat consumption is also at an overall, with worldwide meat consumption increasing 1.4% through 2023.
Food trends of 2023 also point to a rise in new flavors, ingredients, and the growth of the butter board. Like the standard charcuterie board, butter boards are comprised of butter mixed with spices and other additives for complex flavors. It makes a great paring to some warm toasted bread and our ring bologna! In addition to the integration of “foreign” cuisines and exotic dishes, there is a new desire to fuse and mix kitchen styles and traditions. Because the cheerful experimentation with ingredients and methods of preparation inspires many and is spreading rapidly in the form of new popular recipes on social media platforms. It’s a great time to shop local in the name of sustainability with our ring bologna and make something completely new and out of this world with new recipes inspired from abroad!
