Plant-Based Food Trends: What do consumer want and what are restaurants offering
In this month's FoodBytes, we're getting to the root of plant-based trends and the buzz surrounding them with a sneak peek at our Plant-Based Eating SNAP! Keynote Report. With nearly one-third of consumers either limiting their meat consumption (flexitarians) or avoiding meat altogether (vegetarians/vegans), interest in produce and meat alternatives is on the rise. Get the scoop on dairy substitutes like nut milks, next-level plant-based "meats," and see how consumers are increasing their fruit and vegetable intake.
