Concentration and competitiveness in the meat industry are once again in the spotlight at the White House. 

On Sept. 9, the White House issued a notice, authored by aides Brian Deese, Sameera Fazili and Bharat Ramamurti, acknowledging “the president understands that families have been facing higher prices at the grocery store recently.” The report details how the price increases are not only from consumer demand, but a result of lack of competition in the meat processing sector, calling special attention to the Big Four processors.
