Oyster resurgence creates greater demand, but supplies hold up
Oysters are undergoing a renaissance, and it looks as if we have the millennials to thank for that.
According to research firm Datassential, oysters made their way onto nearly 10 percent of menus in 2014 — up about 16 percent from previous years — especially in the fine-dining sector. And men 30 and younger find them especially appealing.
A Midwest(USA)-based distributor to upscale restaurants said she has never seen such demand for oysters — and she’s been on the job for 20 years.
