Description

While there has been a great deal of focus on direct foodservice and retail channels for plant-based foods, industrial B2B sales of plant-based products as ingredients in the frozen and prepared foods sector (in pizzas, burritos, lasagna, soups, etc.) is an underdeveloped channel that can provide sales volume and introduce consumers to alternative protein foods in a familiar way. Opportunity exists for a broker, marketplace, directory, or other exchange platform to facilitate B2B sales of plant-based foods as ingredients to manufacturers of frozen and prepared foods.
