Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Plant-derived Alternatives to Animal-derived Food

The popularity of pea protein in food products is increasing due to the shift in demand from animal protein to plant protein. This inclination toward plant-based diet is associated with factors, such as sustainability, health, religious views, and environmental and animal rights. According to the data published by the Plant Based Foods Association, plant-sourced foods in the United States witnessed notable growth during 2017 and 2018, with a 50% rate alone registered by dairy alternative foods.

Moreover, the production of plant proteins is considered more environmentally economical than animal proteins. Thus, government associations around the world are also encouraging the consumption of sustainable and vegetarian food sources. For instance, the European Vegetarian Union (EVU) encourages the EU commission to limit the production of animal products within its climate policy. The EU also encouraged the decision makers to implement strategies, in order to support the societal dietary transition.
