Dairy & Egg Alternatives: Outlook for Plant-Based & Cell-Cultured Consumer Products

Download Sample

Although the first plant-based dairy and egg substitutes were developed for vegans, flexitarians and omnivores are now the key target market for plant-based dairy and egg products.

More consumers than ever before want to eat more plant-based foods because:
  • They think products that come from plants are healthier.
  • Ongoing publication of news stories about animal abuse and poor conditions at industrial farms is causing people to think more about where their food comes from and what impact it has on the world and the animals being used.
  • Concerns about climate change are leading consumers to question whether dairy and eggs are part of a sustainable diet.
Health concerns are among the biggest factors in convincing consumers to switch their diets to include more plant-based foods or to reduce dairy and egg consumption and adopt a more plant-forward diet. The perception that plant-based dairy and egg products are healthier than conventional dairy and eggs has driven increased sales of these alternatives among those looking to improve their diet.

Additionally, a number of companies are working on developing cell-based dairy and eggs cultured from proteins present in versions made by animals. However, as of December 2020, only one cell-cultured dairy product is yet available on the U.S. consumer market. As more cultivated products are released, they will remove animals from the equation and create opportunities for consumers to eat dairy and eggs without the animal welfare and environmental impacts of the dairy and egg industry. Nonetheless, there are a number of challenges these products will face going forward.
