Growing interest in plant-based alternatives

Recent research conducted by FrieslandCampina and published in our annual Trend Report confirms the growing interest in plant-based alternatives. We have been seeing this trend develop over the past five years and anticipated with a vegan positioned portfolio back in 2016. The launch and latest addition to that portfolio through the Kievit® Vana-Monte V98 emphasizes the growing interest in plant-based alternatives shows no signs of stopping in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Consumers are not only more aware of their health but are also showing increased interest in the source of their food, alongside a craving for a more varied and balanced diet. In addition, better taste is considered to be a fourth and new driver for vegan consumption. The demand for plant-based alternatives is driving expansion to more market categories and regions, and vegan is appealing towards mainstream consumer. The Flexitarian consumer is on the rise and does not want to give in on taste and experience while considering more plant-based, vegetarian and vegan alternatives.

“We are seeing the global trend for more plant-based alternatives transfer more and more to the bakery, desserts and ice cream industries and we are delighted to support our partners and consumers all over the world with giving them a vegan alternative for the perfect Crème Chantilly and sweet or acidic mousses”, says Suzanne van den Eshof, Global Head of Marketing Food Industry at FrieslandCampina. “The Kievit® Vana-Monte V98 makes sure that producers can enjoy increased convenience whereas consumers don`t have to give in on indulgent taste and experience, while enjoying the plan-based version of their favourite bakery-, desserts-and ice cream recipes.
