Talking about ingredients consumers are seeking, there is one we simply can’t miss. This is plants.
- Consumers have been increasing their plant intake for many years, and plant-based eating has now moved into the mainstream. It not only appeals to vegan or vegetarian consumers, it also spreads to a much broader audience: the so-called flexitarians.
- There are multiple reasons for consumers to opt for plant-based. Health remains the number one driver, with 61% choosing plant-based to promote health and 57% to help prevent disease. As trends converge, a better treatment of animals and environmental reasons also grow in importance for consumers.
- Taste, cost and clean eating are three other critical factors for consumers when choosing plant-based and represent some serious challenges to a better adoption of plant-based food and beverages.
