Eating trends have shifted, with more than 500,000 Australian consumers (& growing!) now choosing to follow a plant-based diet. In fact, Australia’s vegan food market is projected to be the third-fastest-growing vegan market in the world, with a growth rate of 9.6 percent between 2015 and 2020. Young consumers continue to drive the movement, more willing to spend money on products that are better for the environment.
So, how has your store adapted to the shifted demands? Is your store working to satisfy these customer’s needs? The vegan wave has been a big factor in supermarkets for a while now and it’s continuing to gain momentum.
We share the gourmet, vegan products our customers are loving at the moment, have you got these ranges in your store? If so, rather than building a vegan area in the corner, put these products front and centre.
Our society is becoming increasingly time-poor and increasingly health conscious too. Convenience is key, especially when it comes to meal prep.
