COVID-19 Impact Insights

The food & beverages domain stands to gain the most out of the crisis, with demand for plant-based foods experiencing steep incline. Increasing apprehension among consumers about the possible spread of COVID-19 through animal-based food products is stimulating demand for vegan alternatives.

This surging requirement for clean label and naturally derived foods is catapulting the plant based chicken market. Demand is especially strong across the United States, Brazil and India, as they have the highest number of COVID-19 infections. Therefore, people are altering their dietary preferences, prompting manufacturers to increase their presence.

The plant based chicken market is highly competitive, interspersed with the presence of numerous regional and global players. Prominent players profiled in the report include Impossible Foods, Gardein (Conagra Brands), Atlantic Natural Foods LLC, Beyond Meat, Puris Proteins LLC, Tyson Foods Inc., and CHS Inc.

Likewise, Gardein by Conagra Brands markets products such as Chick’n and Turk’y, Beefless and Porkless, Fishless and Plant-Based Jerky. Such a wide product offering has enabled the company to capture a large customer base. It also runs the ‘Meatless Monday’ program.
