Future Food Series: Cheese

Plant-based cheese is one of the biggest opportunities in the plant-based sector, as the European Consumer Survey of over 6,000 consumers by ProVeg International in 2020 found.((https://proveg.com/press-release/new-survey-reveals-lucrative-opportunities-in-plant-based-sector/)) While plant-based milk and meat alternatives have seen a steep increase in consumption and acceptance, the plant-based cheese industry has been lagging behind — however, more and more companies are working on alternative products that make it easier for consumers to switch.((https://www.forbes.com/sites/briankateman/2020/01/13/plant-based-cheese-is-finally-undergoing-a-revolution/))
