As Free-from trends continue to accelerate, the event, which covers Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Lactose Free, Egg Free, Sugar Free, Meat Free, Allergy Fre segments, ensures international attendees can keep abreast of the latest ingredients and innovative product launches.

    “This shift to a plant-based diet is not thought to change anytime soon.”

    In its report,, The Vegan Society revealed that 20% of consumers had reduced their meat consumption, while 12% had reduced their eggs and dairy intake. Of those cutting back on animal products, 35% were motivated by health concerns, while 30% cited environmental concerns as their primary motivation. This shift to a plant-based diet is not thought to change anytime soon.

    The same research revealed that over half of respondents (54%) had purchased a meat-free alternative for the first time, and the majority (78%) would continue to buy them again in the future. This is also the case for plant-based milks: 43% purchased oat milk for the first time, while 30% opted for coconut milk. Similarly, vegan staples such as pulses, including lentils and chickpeas were also on the rise.
