Abstract:


The plant-based category is witnessing buoyant growth, boosted by health, environmental and animal welfare concerns. To meet the protein needs of the growing global population within finite planetary boundaries – and to reap the population health benefits of incorporating more plant-based food into our diets – plant-based innovators are formulating analogue products that fit easily into the consumption patterns of a growing cohort of flexitarian consumers.

In this editorial webinar, FoodNavigator will profile the latest approaches to innovation in the plant-based space.
