The big stories
Plant-based meats continue to grow, with consumer awareness of and interest in meat-free foods like the Impossible Burger increasing in 2018. Meat companies are being challenged to retain consumers by promoting the positive attributes of their products, including new ways to consume meat and a focus on humane animal treatment.
In the next two years
As consumers become more engaged and search out meat with ethical considerations, producers will be challenged to expand what it means to raise animals humanely. Terms such as ""barn-free"" and ""slow growth"" will become more common.
In five years and beyond
Lab-grown meats created through cellular agriculture will give consumers more choice in how they get their protein. At the same time, governmental guidelines may encourage consumers to think less of meat and plants as separate categories and embrace both kinds of ""meat"" as possible protein sources to balance within their diets.
