43 MILLION AMERICANS CONSUME PLANT-BASED PROTEIN 06/15/2018

A recent survey conducted by market research firm The NPD Group found that 43 million consumers in the United States regularly purchase plant-based items such as almond milk, tofu, and veggie burgers. Of these consumers, 86 percent did not identify as vegan or vegetarian, which researchers said is an indication that plant-based proteins are becoming a staple in the general population. "It's clear by the growth in plant-based protein case shipments to foodservice and restaurant operators that this category has mainstreamed beyond those who choose a meatless diet," David Portalatin, industry advisor for NPD's Food Sector, said. To substantiate its claims, NPD found that in-home consumption of plant-based protein increased by 24 percent since 2015, with shipments of meatless foods by food service companies to distributors increasing by 19 percent in the year ending March 2018. The mainstreaming of plant-based foods is not confined to the US and is booming worldwide, including in China where a recent study found that 39 percent of consumers were actively reducing their consumption of meat.
