Apart from Mintel, Baum + Whiteman, a global food and restaurant consultants group, included vegetables on its list of the top 11 trends on tap for 2016. The agency considered the “relentlessly rising beef prices, horror over hormones, a scramble for ever-more antioxidants, health-and-diet concerns, growth of farmers markets, locavore drummers, increasing numbers of flexitarians” as factors for the growth of the market. Yahoo Food also added veggies to its 16 Food Trends list, and a list by the buyers of Whole Foods Market had “Plant-Based Everything” at number five.
Plant-based products have installed themselves as a growing market that, we can expect, will continue to make its way towards mainstream consuming habits, presenting great business opportunities and a step towards the spreading of more ethical consumption habits.
