Increasing consumer appetite for alternatives to products perceived to be unhealthy drives the growth of solutions reshaping our overall diet.

Going back to basics with raw, paleo or clean foods
Bland alternatives to meat, dairy, salt or sugar
Innovation in healthier, ‘super taster’ ingredients (i.e. miraculex)
Increasingly affordable and exciting GM meat and dairy analogues (i.e. Impossible Foods meats, Clara Foods eggs)
