A new way of thinking driven by the twin forces of health and environmental sustainability is behind the incredible growth of plant-based foods.
Meeting the mainstream trend for less meat... is your menu ready?
With experts proclaiming the need to diversify our food supply in order to feed the global population in the decades to come, producers, venues and diners are all embracing a plant-based future.
Research shows that more than two-in-five Australians are actively reducing or avoiding meat – a choice that is only going to increase with around 50% of 18 – 34 year olds reporting this preference.*
The climatarian, reductionist and flexitarian diets have each risen in response, encompassing a mix of people who have become more mindful in the way they eat.
