Dunkin chairman and former CEO told Yahoo Finance that he thinks the plant-based food revolution won’t fade anytime soon. Not just a trend, as Dunkin sells Beyond Meat products in their stores. Nigel Travis told Yahoo Finance, “I go to see my doctor as you should do at my age, and all he talks about is plant-based foods. I really think it’s a trend — we are really happy with what has happened with Beyond Meat at Dunkin.”

Wells Fargo researcher’s back Travis‘ views with concrete data. As population grows, meat production will have to grow in turn to satisfy dietary wants.This will stress livestock populations. Enter, plant-based alternatives.

Research from Wells Fargo said, “Consumers are increasingly drawn to plant-based alternatives given rising concerns for health, environmental considerations, and sustainability. We expect that outsized growth will continue for plant-based products, both in the U.S. and globally, and as such, the theme should be a focal point for investors — not only for the impact of disruption to the existing state of affairs but also for new opportunities in an industry challenged for growth.”

Their estimates put plant-based meat sales in the United States at between $12-15 billion over ten years. The market is valued at $5 billion right now. Nestle recently announced it would be making plant-based pizza and lasagna. The Impossible Burger is now available at places like Red Robin and Burger King. Domino’s is bringing a vegan pizza to the UK.Nestle’s spokesperson has also talked about population growth and the strain it will put on diets.
