There is a growing demand by consumers for wholesome menu options.
In fact, 50% of consumers say they’re currently trying to consume fewer animal-based foods (meat, diary, and/or eggs) and more plant-based foods (fruits, grains, beans, and/or vegetables). Plant-based foods can fit within a multitude of eating patterns, placing greater emphasis on vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fruits. And, we do know with plant-based foods, there can also be a positive environmental impact!
