According to Global Meat News: “[This event will highlight the latest developments and barriers in the rapidly expanding plant-based protein market.

“In our annual survey, participants revealed that six percent of alternative proteins affected their businesses during 2017, and 61 percent were in favor of seeing more content on alternative proteins in the future.
