People prefer pig meat when dining out, according to figures released by NPD Group/Crest. The data shows that pork, bacon, sausages and ham now account for 68.7% of all red meat servings in the out-of-home market.

Pig meat also experienced the greatest increase in servings in 2011 compared to other meats. Total pig meat servings increased by 8.1% in 2011, compared with total beef (including beefburgers) which increased by 5.8%, and total lamb (including kebabs) which declined by 0.1%. Chicken servings only increased by 2.9% in the same period and turkey declined by 4.3%.
