Moreover, the German meat substitutes market is showcasing interesting flavours, convenience formats and unctuous textures, with faux meats tasting just like ‘the real deal’ so consumers do not have to compromise on flavour. More novel, premium-tier and tech advances, e.g. 3D printed, are improving the organoleptics of plant-based options in Germany, and are appearing on high-end menus.

Future Outlook & Meat Substitutes Market Opportunities
