Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Ana Paula Gilsogamo, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Price and health concerns are the main reasons why Brazilian consumers are eating meat or meat alternatives less often. Brands and companies, therefore, need to be creative and find ways of offering affordable options that can be perceived as a treat, and remind consumers about the nutritional benefits of the category. Meat alternatives also need to offer more affordable options to increase penetration and consumption frequency. Ana Paula Gilsogamo
