Healthy vegan eating is a trend
According to a survey conducted by Mintel in 2020, 48% of the Brazilian respondents, including omnivores, say they are interested in vegan positionings in food and beverages.
The truth is that Veganism has stopped being a niche a long time ago and isn’t only adopted by those who have some dietary restriction. According to Innova, consumers consider plant-based alternatives mainly because they are healthier and better for the planet.
Thus, globally, brands have been trying to diversify their options and offer more variety to consumers in all categories, from hamburgers to desserts, yogurts, beverages, etc. The most important is always ensure a memorable flavor and consumer experience, as expected for any other type of product.
