Grocery Coupons Website The Grocery Game Offers Expert Insights into Saving Money on Beef, Pork and Poultry
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TheGroceryGame.com, the largest source for grocery coupons and savings tips online, today offered insights into the national food crisis and how consumers can combat rising meat costs. While the USDA currently projects a 3-4 percent increase in meat prices for this year; The Grocery Game, which closely monitors prices on a daily basis, with an exclusive database of national grocery store prices and sales, has tracked even higher percent changes in the first six weeks of the New Year alone.
Boneless chicken breast, for example, has increased in price nationwide by an average of only 3.8 percent according to the USDA's retail prices, yet local grocery stores list significant mark-ups. One such example is the price of boneless skinless chicken breast at Price Chopper stores in Missouri, where a price increase of 33.4 percent occurred between February 2012 and February 2013.
Research conducted by The Grocery Game provides additional examples of similarly increased markups in the last month alone:
"In 2013, consumers will need to pay special attention to not only rising meat costs, but food prices in general," explains Teri Gault, CEO and founder of The Grocery Game. "Families will also need to employ new savings strategies to find produce and healthy food products at an affordable price."
Gault offers the following insights on how to keep meat on the menu without breaking the bank:
