An article today about consumer interest in food items with ethical or environmental credentials, featured local Michael Salm of Salm’s Meats.

Successful Brisbane independent butcher Michael Salm is another retailer who has noted the trend towards demand for meat protein carrying ‘social responsibility’ messages.

Mr Salm, who sits on the Australian Meat Industry Council’s National Retail Council, operates Salm’s Meats in Brisbane’s inner-eastern suburb of Carindale.

He estimated up to 15pc of his shop’s pre-Christmas turnover this year would carry a ‘natural’, ‘free range’ or ‘organic’ label.
