WHO IS DRIVING THE MARKET?
According to the NPD Group food industry analysts, Gen Z
and millennials are leading the way, who choose plant-based
foods for better health, as well as their interest in sustainability
and animal welfare. " About one in five adults say they want
more plant-based foods in their diets, and that number
remained steady throughout 2020, " according to the NPD
Group's " The Future of Plant-based Snapshot: The Evolution
of Plant-based Continues. " The report says that their interest
extends beyond burgers and almond milk - plant-based
opportunities can be found in frozen, shelf-stable, indulgent
and snack categories. It also reports that about 90% of them
are neither vegetarian nor vegan, so their focus is on options,
and taste and convenience is most important.

consumers on the go, and food manufacturers from startups
to leading CPG companies are offering many options.

mangos are freeze-dried to retain the flavors and nutrients of

marketing manager. " Our fruit products are allergen-friendly
and contain one ingredient - fruit. " The convenient packaging
makes them perfect for on-the-go snacking.
