Australia’s Growing Appetite For Plant-Based Foods

Plant-based foods are revolutionising Australia’s culinary landscape, with one in three Australians consciously limiting their meat consumption for health, economic, and environmental reasons.

GLNC has conducted a comprehensive state of the industry report that sheds light on the increasing popularity of plant-based diets and products in Australia.

This report provides an in-depth analysis of recent product developments in the plant-based space, focusing on four key categories: meat, milk, dairy alternative products, and ready meals. It highlights the nutrient composition differences between plant-based options and their conventional counterparts.

Among the key growth areas, plant-based meat alternatives have seen a remarkable surge, with the number of plant-based meat substitutes in Australia increasing five-fold since 2015. The report reveals that plant-based meat alternatives have lower kilojoules and sodium, higher or comparable protein, and more dietary fibre than traditional options.

The movement towards plant-based eating is changing the food industry and driving manufacturers to develop more plant-based products to meet the evolving preferences of Australian consumers.
