Concerned about their health, the environment, or the ethical impact of the products they consume, French consumers are increasing attentive to what is on their plate. Plant-based products are in the spotlight as the population reduces their meat consumption
In the spotlight of healthy eating are plant-based products, reflected by a strong increase in flexitarianism “moins mais mieux – less but better”. According to the GEPV 2020 barometer on the perception and appreciation of plant proteins in France, 16% of the French population follow a flexitarian diet and 41% declare that they intend to reduce their meat consumption.
Major food retail chains as well as start-ups and food tech platforms have accelerated their innovations and investments to offer alternatives at competitive prices. Carrefour, Monoprix, Picard, Naturalia, Uber… plant-based alternatives are in high demand across many product categories.
