Plant-Based Protein Trend Boosts Food And Beverage Industries

September 1, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
American consumers, particularly Millennials, continue to look for dietary protein from other sources besides meat. These include seafood and eggs, as well as plant-based sources like beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, quinoa, etc. The trend has also taken hold in the beverage arena. An example is the dairy-free almond milk produced by Califia Farms, available in supermarkets and via subscription. Sales of beverages and creamers, coffees, and juices at the seven-year-old California company grew 77 percent in 2016. The company’s CEO says the next big trend will be plant-based cultured products such as cheese, butters, and yogurts.
