Beefburger the star The beefburger is again a star performer in the meat market, MLC quoting market research showing burger sales volume up 17% year on year in the four weeks to February 6. Other market analysts are worried by the slower rate of beefburger spending growth, suggesting this is symptomatic of price pressure in the retail and catering beef markets generally, although a partial explanation may be improving penetration. Beefburgers appear to be taking sales from burgers based on other raw materials. {{MEAT }}
