David MacLennan, CEO of Cargill â€“ the number two beef player in the U.S. â€“ told FOX Business consumers are tired of chicken.
â€œOur beef business in the U.S. is growing,â€ MacLennan told Maria Bartiromo on Mornings with Maria Wednesday. â€œPeople are eating more beef. I think they are rotating now out of chicken.â€
According to MacLennan, fish is also becoming more popular.
â€œThe world is going to eat more fish â€“ more salmon, more shrimp, more tilapia. So we have a significant fish feed business in Cargill.â€
MacLennan attributed the trend to healthier lifestyles.
â€œItâ€™s about health. Consumer preferences are changing. People are more aware, especially in developed economies, about the food that they eat, whatâ€™s in it [and] who made it.â€
