Interest in plant-based foods continues to move steadily towards long-term growth well beyond that of transitory food trends. The plant-based movement has become a lifestyle, resulting in foodservice and retailers offering hundreds of plant-based food options. Globally, the plant-based meat market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 15% from 2019 to 2025.1 Consumers are seeking the benefits of plant-forward dishes, with 25% saying they are eating more vegetarian or vegan options than they were two years ago.2
To attract new patrons and keep up with consumer demand, a growing number of foodservice and restaurant operators have added vegan or plant-based dishes to their menus. Cafés, bistros, and other restaurants now all offer a plant-based meal option. The term “plant-based” saw a 300% spike on menus from 2018 to 2019.3 Vegan and vegetarian-friendly entrées claimed seven of the top 10 most ordered dishes in 2019, up from only three of the top 10 spots in 2018, as reported by Grub Hub.4 Additionally, the top meat-alternative options ordered were Impossible Burger, black bean burger, tofu, mushroom burger, and jackfruit.5 Chipotle, Flame Broiler, Del Taco, Taco Bell, Burger King, Carl’s Jr., and Starbucks are just a few fast-casual establishments that have seen success from adding plant-based food and beverages to their menus.
With a 268% sales increase of meat substitutes to restaurants from 2018 to 2019,6 foodservice operators are not the only sector seeing the increase in demand. The total U.S. retail market value of plant-based foods generated $5 billion in 2019, representing a rapid 11.4% growth over 2018, with total U.S. retail food sales increasing by just 2% comparatively.7
Popular subcategories within the plant-based industry include beverages, cheese and other dairy alternatives, meat alternatives, and soyfoods. Such increase in demand can be attributed to a shift in consumer values favoring alternative foods for sustainability, environmental purposes, and changes in lifestyle.
Consumers have a desire to eat healthier foods and practice mindful eating, which is just one factor driving the change in demand for plant-based alternatives and soyfoods. Approximately 39% of shoppers seek plant-based foods for health factors.8 Furthermore, in the 26th annual survey of Consumer Attitudes About Soyfoods & Health conducted by the United Soybean Board, 74% of consumers view soyfoods as healthy.9 Soyfoods offer valuable nutrition, providing an alternative source for essential nutrients.
With versatility as another driving factor, soyfoods play an integral role in the plant-based movement. From energy bars, soymilk, and edamame to tofu, veggie burgers, and other meat alternatives, soyfoods can be consumed throughout various meal occasions: at breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even as a snack. Vegan scrambles, power bowls, meatless burgers, and vegan desserts are among the popular food trends popping up at fast-casual diners, chains, and other restaurants everywhere.
Consumers are also increasingly interested in global flavors and ingredients, with 2/3 of patrons enjoying new flavors on occasion at restaurant chains.10 From traditional Asian dishes to Indian or Mediterranean fare, soyfoods (including tofu and tempeh) cover a variety of ethnic cuisines allowing foodservice operators to capture those wanting to experience new flavors.
Whether it be diet restrictions or ingredient substitutions, 34% of diners seek restaurants that focus on personalized options.11 With these growing demands and the increased interest in plant-based foods, foodservice and retailers that incorporate plant-based foods into their offerings can remain competitive in today’s marketplace and provide the variety of menu options that consumers today are seeking.
