Sales of meat alternatives in restaurants have increased by 268 percent from 2018 to 2019 (compared to a 21.7 percent increase in the year prior), according to a recent analysis by food industry organization Dining Alliance.
We’re well past trendy status when it comes to diners eating less meat. In fact, while few consumers identify as vegetarian or vegan, 67% consider plant-based foods or beverages to be healthy, and these items can drive purchases among a majority (58%) of consumers.
