Grocery stores are re-imagining the meat department. Shelving all center-of-the-plate proteins—whether from plants or animals—in the same place is a savvy move.
From major restaurants to major retailers, food industry leaders are answering the call from consumers to provide more and more plant-based options. Here's what's driving the plant-based meat market.
The biggest retailers in the United States are catching the plant-based wave. As Kroger and Walmart add plant-based products to their shelves, more people across the country have easy access to cost-competitive plant-based options. Sales of plant-based products are increasing in every region across the country, and major retailers are taking note.
Following up on last year's market data, GFI is excited to share highlights of newly commissioned data from Nielsen on the U.S. retail sales of plant-based foods. Spoiler: total sales of plant-based foods now exceed $3.7 billion.
