Today's food landscape is evolving rapidly as more and more consumers are shifting away from traditional animal products towards more wholesome, sustainable and ethical options. Businesses across the food spectrum are seeking to better understand this new consumer mindset to build a foundation that can last for many years to come.

Over the past year alone plant-based food categories have grown by over 20%, compared to just 2% across all other categories.
