Plant-based protein finds a plate in foodservice

  • 2022 was a strong year: U.S. broadline distributor sales of plant-based proteins reached $304 million in 2022, an increase of 8% from pre-pandemic levels in 2019.
  • Anything that tastes like animal-based meat is “in”: Analog plant-based proteins — those that most closely mimic the taste and texture of animal-based meat — accounted for 53% of the pound sales in 2022, up from 39% in 2019.
  • Plant-based protein buyers come again and again: Buyers of plant-based meat tend to be high-value buyers, making about 30 more trips to foodservice locations per year, and spending approximately $400 more than the average buyer.
