And it Supermarkets could sell fro- zen meat at six to 10 cents a pound less than fresh, suoer- market officials say. providing there widespread consumer acceptance and certain techni- cal and labor problems could be licked. They say, however, that it is still several years away. The Associated Press asked supermarket shoppers during last week's meat boycott about their attitudes toward frozen meat. Most said they froze 90 per cent of their purchases at home. At the same time they exhib- ited some caution about buying commercially frozen meat- fearing it might have been fro- zen than once, that it might lose vitamin content, that it might be old. But, assuming that quality could be maintained, most of jthc shoppers said they would buy frozen meat if it would cost less. Th2 big savings would come in precutting and freezing meat j at the packing house, leaving the waste and bone there in- stead of shipping it to markel ;is part of the whole carcass. Jdivlly that would mean rcciuc- liim-> in the cosl of labor, trans- portation and shrinkage. It means reducing labor costs in the supermarket by onc- j third. j CONTRACT 1'KOBLEM I While labur would be the ma- it'i- saving in a frozen-meat sys- tem, it is also 'he major barrier to irozen-meat salss. Even if they switched completely to fro- zen meat, supermarkets would probaMy have to keep a butcher or meat cutter on duty whether he was needed or not, because of job-security clauses in current contracts. The other major factor would be lowering the temperature in meat cases to at Isast 10 de- grees below zero and possibly to 40 degrees below.
