The boom in plant-based and cell-based protein: Opportunities across the F&B value chain [On-demand webinar]

Video-The boom in plant-based and cell-based protein: Opportunities across the F&B value chain [On-demand webinar]

This presentation explores the future of both plant-based and cell-based protein. Perceived health benefits, “flexitarians,” climate change, and animal welfare are the key drivers of growth, as interest has evolved to mainstream consumers beyond vegetarian and vegan cohorts.

The COVID-19 pandemic helped accelerate trial in the retail channel, and major plant-based meat brands, such as Beyond, seized the moment by shifting focus and investment from foodservice.

Plant-based protein penetration is expected to peak by 2035, with cell-based further behind. The future is bright as technology is evolving to meet the evolving needs of consumers.
