Strategic Partnerships Accelerate the Proliferation of Plant-based Foods

FinancialBuzz.com News Commentary NEW YORK, April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Plant-based foods are part of a relatively new market, one that is witnessing a major growth in demand. In fact, major plant-based meat and dairy brands like Beyond Meat, Impossible Foods, and Oatly have played a large part in growing the popularity of such products in recent years. Their partnerships with restaurants, fast-food chains, and global food manufacturers have made vegan options more accessible to a wider demographic. According to data provided by the Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA), U.S. retail sales of plant-based foods continue to increase, growing 6.2% in 2021 and bringing the total plant-based market value to an all-time high of USD 7.4 Billion. Planet Based Foods Global Inc. /zigman2/quotes/232262425/delayed CA:PBF -9.09% /zigman2/quotes/233029808/composite PBFFF +18.28% , Beyond Meat, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/211617595/composite BYND +7.18% , Benson Hill, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/224964076/composite BHIL -2.92% , Oatly Group AB /zigman2/quotes/226726562/composite OTLY +5.20% , Farmmi, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/207937522/composite FAMI 0.00% Additional data from the PBFA report shows that 62%, or 79 million, of U.S. households are now buying plant-based products, representing an increase from 61% (77 million in 2020). Julie Emmett, PBFA's Senior Director of Marketplace Development, explained that "More and more consumers are turning to plant-based options that align with their values and desire to have a positive impact on personal and planetary health. The data shows that, despite the challenges of the past two years, retailers and foodservice providers are meeting consumers where they are by partnering with brands across the entire store to expand space, increase assortment, and make it easier than ever to find and purchase plant-based foods. The potential impact of these initiatives extends far beyond the store shelf: By taking consumer concerns to heart, the industry is actively embracing its role as a key driver of change that moves us closer to a secure and sustainable food system."

Benson Hill, Inc.   /zigman2/quotes/224964076/composite BHIL -2.92% reported back in February the launch of TruVail™, a new line of domestically sourced, non-GMO plant-based protein ingredients with unique sustainability benefits. The TruVail™ brand's initial offering includes high protein soy flour, a less processed equivalent to soy protein concentrate (SPC), and texturized proteins for broad use across traditional soy protein applications as well as rapidly growing alternative plant-based protein markets. TruVail™ ingredients are sourced from Benson Hill's proprietary Ultra-High Protein (UHP) soybeans, reducing the need for additional processing steps typically required to concentrate protein levels. The resulting less processed, value-added ingredient can serve as a more sustainable alternative to commodity soy protein concentrate (SPC) and can require up to 70% less water and up to 50% less CO2e to produce than SPC.1 Benson Hill works with farmers to grow its identity preserved UHP soybean varieties with an emphasis on regenerative agriculture practices, enabling sustainability benefits from farm to fork.

"At Oatly, we want to drive a more sustainable food system, because this is essential not only for our health, but especially for the climate. To achieve this, we need to make the switch to a more plant-based diet as easy as possible by making tasty plant-based products available to more consumers. We are proud that Deutsche Bahn is introducing Oatly as the first ever plant-based milk alternative in their on-board catering. And we hope that many other companies follow this example," explains Tobias Goj, General Manager Oatly Germany.

Farmmi, Inc.   /zigman2/quotes/207937522/composite FAMI 0.00% reported last month that it won another repeat customer order for its dried black fungus and dried mushrooms.

Our team is really doing a great job supporting our customers worldwide, as we help them to secure the quantities they need and to navigate the ongoing logistics situation. This is an exciting time for us and we are working hard to capture an increased share of the opportunities in front of us."
