2022 Outlook of Plant-Based and Next Gen Protein

About This Webinar

With plant-based products making deep inroads in 2021, many food industry insiders and investors expect plant-based foods to become an even larger part of our diet moving forward. With consumers increasingly focused on health and wellness, and ESG trends moving to the forefront of the national dialogue, does the plant-based category have the potential to overtake animal-based products? Or, will plant-based remain a niche category?

In this FI-exclusive webinar, we will provide an overview of the current state of the plant-based market and where it's headed in 2022 and beyond. Co-presenters Nik Modi of RBC Capital Markets and Darren Seifer of NPD will offer expert insight on the following areas:

• Consumer and demographic trends in key plant-based categories
• Current challenges in broad plant-based adoption
• Opportunities in innovation
• Latest investment trends
• Valuation considerations in the plant-based industry
• The rise of cell-based meats, and insect protein

Join us as we peer into the future of the plant-based and next-gen protein market.
