Dried meats like jerky have been around for longer than recorded history, and they are still popular today. It's a savory treat that can be healthier than traditional snack foods if appropriately prepared. There's a growing market for gourmet jerky, and business owners can increase their revenue by just by stocking their store with it or creating a private label jerky to sell to other retailers. Here are some of the reasons why you should sell high-quality jerky from Smokehouse Jerky Co.
According to Project NOSH, which cited research from IBIS World, jerky sales exceeded $1 billion in 2017. Analysts expect this market to become even more significant in the future. The market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 4.2 percent through 2022. However, it's essential to note that the growth in the market isn't spread evenly. Certain kinds of jerky products are becoming more popular. Specifically, natural forms of jerky, such as the artisanal or premium jerky you can get through Smokehouse Jerky Co., and products labeled as organic, grass-fed, or produced without antibiotics.
Smokehouse Jerky Co. makes jerky that will appeal to health-conscious consumers like millennials. According to one 2017 study, nearly nine out of ten (89 percent) of millennials consumed one or more better-for-you snacks in the past week, and half of them drove at least five miles to purchase a snack they were craving. Having gourmet jerky can be a reason for consumers to visit a particular store location.
Another benefit of selling jerky from Smokehouse Jerky Co. is that our products have simple, easy-to-understand ingredients lists. Our jerky also only uses a handful of ingredients. Even with the exotic flavors, we offer, such as Honey Pepper Bacon Jerky, the taste is achieved using a handful full of natural ingredients.
In the study mentioned above, 64 percent said they looked for products with fewer ingredients, and 79 percent said they had more trust in a packaged snack if everything on the ingredient list made sense to them. Smokehouse Jerky Co. packaging addresses all of these concerns, which will make the product fly off your shelves.
The products produced by Smokehouse Jerky Co. are handmade using high-quality, natural ingredients. Our gourmet jerky even includes some gluten-free varieties, which is a growing concern for many consumers. The quality of our products make Smokehouse Jerky Co. stand out, and businesses that stock their shelves with our products will distinguish themselves with their customers.
