Trends and Innovations seminar to confront lagging sales of plant-based meat alternatives
The Trends and Innovations seminar, a Sosland Publishing web series presented by Food Business News, will return this spring to explore why current plant-based meat alternatives may be missing the mark and how product developers can innovate to meet consumer needs.
“The meat alternatives market experienced rapid growth in 2019 and 2020,” said Keith Nunes, editor, Food Business News. “In 2021, sales slowed and product developers are seeking insights into what consumers want from the category.”
Mr. DuBois will kick off the seminar with an overview of market trends related to meat alternatives. He will take a deep dive into the category’s declining sales and explore why products are falling short. Ms. Thompson will then look at opportunities for plant-based meat alternatives and how product developers can deliver on the product attributes consumers are searching for.
Launched in 2019, Trends and Innovations is attended by more than 1,000 food industry professionals every year. The virtual event examines trends driving new product development and highlights potential areas of growth for packaged food companies.
