More plant-based foods and drinks are making their way into consumers’ shopping carts, and a popular fake meat burger will soon hit grocery store shelves.
A DuPont Nutrition & Health study on consumer eating habits found that 52 percent of U.S. shoppers report eating more plant-based foods and drinks. Globally, it’s about 65 percent of consumers. DuPont looked at the eating habits of more than 1,000 people.
“There is a seismic shift occurring in eating habits globally, creating a significant market opportunity. Most important, our research reveals that for most consumers, this has moved beyond experimentation into a permanent change brought on by health, lifestyle and social factors,” DuPont official Greg Paul said in a news release on the study.
