Webinar: Ingredient opportunities for the plant-based food market

Plant-based food

For many reasons, consumers are looking for plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy products more and more often. The growing plant-based food market creates an opportunity for producers in developing countries. Food and beverage producers are seeking new proteins and related ingredients.

This webinar provides an update on the European market for plant-based foods. We will highlight the business openings for producers in developing countries.

During this webinar, we will address the following questions:

  • What market trends and developments are causing growth in the European plant-based food market?
  • What country markets are the most important?
  • What are the leading plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy products?
  • What proteins/ingredients are mostly used in plant-based foods?
  • What does the supply chain look like for plant-based ingredients?
  • Who are the leading producers/buyers in Europe?
