Shifting Consumer Behaviour: Where is the Opportunity?

The 13th Plant-Based Food Summit will focus on:

  • New Consumer Trends

The demand for plant-based foods is increasing and there are many opportunities for retailers, food service operators, and brands to serve the consumer better and more inspiring foods. Consumers are also seeking more healthy and sustainable diets and they are increasing their plant-based food intake. What is driving consumers? How relevant is the climate when shopping for food? What are the nutritional characteristics? Is this a relevant trend? What does Generation X think about plant-based or vegan? How can retailers and food service channels capitalize on the trend of plant-based? Where are we now and what does the future look like? What are the do’s and don’ts to build the category with brands? What can North America learn from Europe? Innovation is booming. New brands and categories are popping up in the existing outlets, but also in new ones. Who will lead the market in 2 years time?
