Competitive Analysis: Hams Market Shows High Level of Fragmentation

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, two Brazilian meat processing plants were forced to suspend operations, which were BRF (Brazil Foods), and JBS. Demand for hams from restaurants and other foodservice firms fell drastically, leaving vendors with large quantities of unsold stock.

Tyson Foods informed its investors about a 50% decline in the U.S. pork production. Costco also announced restrictions on fresh meat sales, limiting customers to buy not more than three items from poultry, beef, and pork products. Considering the situation, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has relaxed its guidelines on food labeling to allow ham manufacturers to directly sell products to retailers originally intended for the foodservice industry.
