Plant-Based Food Sales + New Wave Foods Shrimp – Xtalks Food Podcast Ep. 6

Plant-Based Food Sales + New Wave Foods Shrimp

Plant-based food sales shot up in 2020, but will the trend continue? In this episode of the Xtalks Food Podcast, Sydney discusses new data showing that the US market for plant-based foods grew by 27 percent to $7 billion last year, sparking a debate on whether processed foods are actually regarded as healthier if they don’t contain animal products. 

Also in this episode, Mira talks about how Seaspiracy, a new Netflix documentary covering unsustainable fishing practices, inspired a movement towards plant-based fish. She discusses New Wave Foods’ plant-based shrimp, which looks, tastes and feels like the real thing, and asks the team whether it’s something they would consider trying.
