Since my blog on 19 June about dairy alternatives worldwide, the Plant Based Foods Association has published research by Nielsen for the year to 16 June 2018.
This puts US retail sales at $3.3 billion, up 20% on the previous year. The figures include meat and other animal product alternatives, but exclude some outlets and non-dairy products.
The research highlights the scale of advance by non-dairy and non-meat products.
Plant-based milks now account for 13% of total US milk sales. Plant-based meat, however, could prove by far the bigger opportunity.
