2021 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar
Title: Pricing the Alternative Revolution – A Look at Plant-Based Protein Prices and Trends
Description: Increased demand for healthy eating alternatives and preferences for “Flexitarian” diets is driving the growth in plant-based proteins. As food producers rush to embrace these new ingredients, we consider how increased risk could affect plant-protein costs as well as supply. What are the critical challenges for plant proteins to truly become mainstream, and what is needed to overcome these challenges? Will, the switch impact prices across other food ingredients, and how will change to supply chains affect sourcing and supplier options? Will this volatility flow through to increase food costs for the consumer? Can long-term trends see plant protein become cost-competitive with meat protein?
