Consumers are increasingly choosing to eat fish and seafood when dining out—according to Technomic’s 2022 Poultry & Seafood Consumer Trend Report, 45% of consumers eat seafood at least once a week, 26% say they are eating more seafood now than they were two years ago and 37% say they expect to eat even more seafood in the coming year. The reasons are varied—55% say they are eating healthier and consider seafood options to be healthier, while 35% say they like more of the seafood options available at restaurants now and 27% say they are eating more because there are more seafood options available at restaurants.
In short, consumers are looking for and interested in ordering seafood dishes—which presents a big opportunity for operators. When adding seafood options to the menu, it’s key to tune in to what diners are looking for—42% of consumers prefer to eat wild-caught seafood versus farm-raised, and 38% of consumers say it’s important to know which country the seafood is from, so sourcing should be highlighted on menus.
