Lewis Hamilton, Simon Cowell, Bill Clinton and half of Hollywood have recently announced their dedication to a plant-based diet. Veganism and vegetarianism are not new. What is new, is how we perceive these lifestyle choices and the sheer number of plant-based foods on offer to us.
As the appeal of plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy continue to grow, vegetable producers are presented with a new, highly lucrative market receiving heavy investment in preparation for enormous growth.

Demand for organic food is on the rise. In the US alone in 2017, the market was valued at $45.20billion. By 2025, it is forecast to be worth $70.4billion. This upsurge is fuelled by many aspects, including the trend towards plant-based diets and healthier living. It is also indicative of another trend: that consumers are willing to pay more to know precisely where their veggies come from.

I joined TOMRA Food as a Business Development Specialist in May 2017. From the market research at the beginning of a new project, until the development of marketing deliverables at the end, it is very exciting to introduce a new food sorting application to the TOMRA Food family. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling the world, discovering new cultures.
