Roasted Vegetables and the Rise of Plant-Based Diets
It’s undeniable there is a rise in plant-based eating. Now, more than ever before, consumers are looking to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their diets. Don’t confuse plant-based eating as a trend either. More and more it’s proving to be a way of life. Consumers are demanding nutritious products that not only taste good but make them feel even better.
Vice President and General Manager at Conagra Brands, Tara Rozalowsky, was recently quoted saying, “Fifty-two percent of households purchase plant-based foods, and more than 60% are trying to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet yet have concerns that they’ll sacrifice taste or texture.”
