Are Plant-Based Foods being sold at unjustified premiums?

While global plant-based Protein production stands at well over 500 million mt, actually
only 2.5 million mt are used as a protein ingredient for human food consumption – the
remainder is used to feed animals. Among those 2.5 million mt, there are many different
types of Plant-based proteins that all have different purposes. Let's look at this in more
detail and answer four key questions:

  • What plant-based proteins are and how do they compare to each other?

  • How does the cost structure of similar plant-based and non-vegan products compare?

  • If there is a premium for producing plant-based products, is it justified?

  • How could this premium change over time?

  • plant-based premiums
