    After conducting almost a year of research into the plant-based meat category, is working with the to introduce and promote alt-meat in the country.

    In July, the two organisations held a workshop on the smart protein sector, discussing factors such as opportunities and potential within the Indian market, marketing activities and promotions, and updated research data. The meeting was attended by Amazon’s entire fresh food retail team, as well as category managers from Amazon Food and other new initiatives.

    The outcome of the workshop was a planned strategy for testing the plant-based category in the Indian market. Now, Amazon has started the experiment by offering made by Indian company Blue Tribe Foods. To begin with, they will only be available via Amazon Fresh in Mumbai.

    Blue Tribe’s products are initially being sold at huge discounts of 96% and 97% respectively, priced at Rs. 11 rather than the usual recommended retail prices of Rs. 295 and Rs. 325. The aim is to tempt consumers who may not otherwise try plant-based meat. Amazon India says it is important to offer alt-meat products at economical prices to make them a low-risk purchase for new consumers.
