Anuga has partnered with Euromonitor International in an exclusive report looking at evolving food and nutrition trends around the world. The whitepaper paper highlights plant-based eating and alternative proteins as a the key trends, while at the same time global consumption of meat does continue to rise and must be addressed.
The organisation states, “The relationship between consumers and their food is changing. Manufacturers are adapting to this change to provide products that are tailored to consumers’ ever-changing lifestyles and values.”
In terms of the rise of plant-based diets around the planet, the report says that “meat analogues have taken the lead among alternative proteins” and says that lab cultured meat is a prospect which “looms” but that it faces significant challenges, for example in terms of cost and public acceptance.
Next month will see the 2019 Anuga trade fair in take place Cologne, with a focus on “Alternative Proteins – New Sources to Feed 10 Billion” which will discuss plant solutions, cell-based meat and fish cultures, and other protein sources.
