This article reports that the robust demand for corn has raised the prices for poultry and other meats in the U.S. According to Joe DePippo, president of FreeBird Chicken, chicken's near 90 pound per capita consumption rate far exceeds that of any other protein. The trend will likely hit some segments harder than others. Perdue Farms is striving to add innovation to its lineup with the launch of a new line of fresh, boneless, skinless chicken breasts dubbed Perdue Perfect Portions.
