Palm Beach, FL – August 25, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Plant-based food is becoming a long-term solution for customers all over the world, owing to the growing number of product possibilities in the plant-based business. If sales continue to grow, as projected, the plant-based food industry has the potential to become a viable choice in supermarkets and restaurants alike. Plant-based food is considered to be a broad variety of food items which are made from natural plant-based ingredients. Vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains and legumes are commonly used in these goods, which do not contain any animal and animal-sourced items like milk, meat, or eggs. Tofu, coconut, almond milk, tempeh, and seitan are some of the most popular plant-based food. A recent report projected that the global plant-based food market is expected to reach market valuation of USD 10.9 Bn in 2022, accelerating with a CAGR of 12.2% by 2022-2032. Plant-based food sales are likely to account for about 96.5% of the demand in the global plant-based protein market anticipated to be valued at USD 11.3 Billion by 2022 and reach USD 34.5 Billion by 2032. The report said: Historically, plant-based food consumption grew at a CAGR of 10.0% from 2017 to 2021 as the period marked a shift in consumer eating habits as people started taking up veganism. Additionally, the discovery of novel goods such as plant-based milk, egg substitutes, and meat substitutes in recent years has resulted in rising consumer acceptance of these food items. These goods are high in critical nutrients and taste virtually comparable to those derived from animals. Furthermore, awareness campaigns by celebrities and athletes have promoted the intake of vegetarian products in order to have a healthy diet in addition to easy accessibility of these products over online sales channels, which are expected to propel the market further. Active companies in the markets this week include: Pangea Natural Foods Inc. (OTCPK: PNGAF) (CSE: PNGA), Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND), The Very Good Food Company Inc. (NASDAQ: VGFC) (TSXV: VERY), Oatly Group AB (NASDAQ: OTLY), ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (OTCQX: BABYF) (TSX-V: BABY).
The report added: The increased incidence of chronic lifestyle disorders and sensitivity to animal protein is one of the key factors driving the market’s growth. Furthermore, the sector is being propelled forward by the global adoption of vegan dietary habits. As people grow more aware of animal health and the prevention of cruelty to animals in the food industry, there is a trend in public preference for plant based food items all over the world. Manufacturers of plant-based food work with restaurants and large chains and industry titans… are attempting to gain a competitive advantage by expanding their plant-based product distribution and launching advertising efforts that highlight their diversity of possibilities. Higher sales and utilization of plant-based alternatives will be aided by international food chains and large businesses that provide plant-based sausage, burger, and milk substitutes will inspire consumers to change their eating habits.”
