“Plant-based foods are continuing to top the list of trends in the food and beverage space with chickpeas, global flavors, meat alternatives, non-allergen foods and organic products set to be top priorities for consumers in 2021, according to EHL Ingredients, a UK-based firm.
For several years, research has shown that plant-based foods are on the rise, and this trend prediction is in line with the growing industry focused on these vegan alternatives. Last year, Innova Market Insights ranked plant-based foods as the No. 2 trend for 2020; it was also the No. 2 trend the year before.”
