Consumers are seeking plant-based entrées

A Business Opportunity


There is a tremendous opportunity for leading restaurants to capitalize on the movement toward plant-based eating. At present, more than 60% of the top one hundred restaurant brands The Good Food Institute evaluated do not yet offer plant-based entrées, and are missing out on purchases as a result.

Including plant-based menu options will appeal to consumers’ changing tastes while showing customers, investors, and employees that your company is committed to sustainability and long-term financial success.
