Of all the excitement that took place at the Javits Center this past weekend, one thing to note was the presence of the mainstream food industry.
Buyers from large scale food retailers, distributors and food service providers have taken notice of the increased consumer demand for plant-based options. The Plant Based World expo floor gave these professionals a one-stop-shop to experience the latest products that have hit the market.
This article from Progressive Grocer takes you on a tour of the different product categories that were represented, aimed towards the grocery professional audience seeking to keep up with the consumer trends towards healthier and more sustainable food options.
The event may be over, but many of the products showcased at Plant Based World, held June 7-8 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York, seem poised to make a major impression on shoppers, especially in the meat alternative space.
