As suppliers of plant-based ingredients to manufacturers over the past 30 years, Brusco Food Group have helped switch many customers to meat free options.

The rise of plant-based ingredients
There has been a growing trend for consumers enjoying a plant-based lifestyle. Whether it’s to help the environment, health reasons or enhanced food education, many consumers are switching to a plant-based lifestyle.
The last five years, we have seen the trend continue to grow. Creating a whole new generation dedicated to a healthier way of eating.
Understanding food and their benefits
Food education is a huge reason why many are switching to plant-based dining. Consumers are understanding new ways to include protein in their diets and adding texture through alternative methods.
Many have tried swapping chicken and pork for jackfruit and minced beef for wild mushrooms.
Customers are understanding the health benefits and proteins that are associated with plant-based ingredients. Even if they still eat meat, they are making educated adaptions to their meals.
Small changes can be made to enhance everyday meals, to make them healthier, rich in nutrients and adding to their all important 5 a day.
