A quick overview of the vegan market trend
The vegan market consists of the sale of vegan products and related services for consumption purposes. Vegan products include food and beverages produced without the use of animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients. Vegan food products include fruits and vegetables, legumes such as peas, beans, plant protein-based tofu and plant protein-based meat.
One of the trends in the vegan market is the production of meat through cell-based technology. The cell-by-cell identical meat is produced in factories without involving the killing of animals. Production of cell-based meat involves feeding the animal cells with nutrients and proteins thus, eliminating the need for dependence on animals for meat. Following the trend, in 2019, Memphis Meats, a U.S.A-based cell-based meat start-up, received investments from Cargill, a US-based food production company, for the production of cell-based vegan animal meat. Since 2016, other major players such as Tyson Foods., a US-based processor and marketer of chicken, beef, and pork, are also investing in Memphis Meats in order to support cell-based meat production.
