Alternative Protein Industry to Recalibrate and Strengthen, Significant Progress Expected in 3-5 Years

Despite recent challenges in the alternative protein industry, such as sales downturns and capacity struggles, a new report by ProVeg Incubator suggests that this ‘correction phase’ will ultimately strengthen the sector‘s long-term prospects.

The report – Five Years, 100 Startups, and the Future of Food reveals that the correction phase reflects a healthy recalibration, separating genuine potential from hype. Although the next year or so might be challenging due to economic conditions and investment landscapes, the report predicts a bright future.

“The next wave will lead the way, and further accelerate the transformation and growth of the industry”

New, competitively priced products with improved taste, nutrition, and texture are entering the market. Additionally, regulatory pathways are expected to improve, particularly in cultivated and precision fermentation sectors.
