Fort Collins, Colorado, April 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Consumers are displaying a heightened awareness of health concerns as they increasingly prioritize healthy lifestyles. As per the International Food Information Council (IFIC) survey conducted in 2023, more than 73% of global consumers are actively taking steps to manage their health through dietary choices. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also noted a nearly tripled worldwide prevalence of obesity since 1975, prompting a greater emphasis on healthy eating habits and weight management. Meal replacements emerge as a perceived more nutritious alternative, typically fortified with essential nutrients to meet specific nutritional needs. These products are formulated with balanced macronutrients and controlled calories, often used to facilitate weight loss or management.

The anticipated increase in demand for personalized and plant-based/vegan meal replacement options is expected to offer growth opportunities to key market players in the forecast period. Consumers are growing in preference for products catering to their specific dietary needs, allergies, and individual fitness goals. Manufacturers can capitalize on this trend by offering customized meal replacement solutions with various flavors and textures to suit diverse preferences. Additionally, there is a rising interest in plant-based diets due to their health, environmental, and ethical benefits. According to the Plant-Based Foods Association (PBFA) and The Good Food Institute (GFI), the U.S. plant-based food market has experienced significant growth.
