According to Forbes, 2021 will be the year of plant-based food products.
In the first quarter of 2020, the amount of investments reached 1.1 billion euros for this sector.
Increasingly, investors are seeing the success of companies like Beyond Meat & Oatly, and wanting a piece of the vegan pie.
Well-established companies in the food industry, such as Burger King, McDonald’s and Taco Bell, were the first to include Plant-Based products in their production lines. On the other hand, start-ups are constantly innovating and shaping new data in the “alternative meat market”.
Plant-Based chicken nuggets, burgers, sausages and minced meat are some of the products based on plant raw materials. In many of their versions actually may not contain soy, gluten and GMO.
The rise of vegans as well as flexitarians (who have consciously reduced meat) has led many companies to find alternative foods in order to attract a wider audience.
The Double–Paddle Lakidis Mixers- PL SERIES – with 180, 300, 450, 900 liters revolutionise the food processing. LAKIDIS SA already counts many of premium customers in Greece, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Australia and USA who have either incorporated the plant based series into their production line, or have invested entirely in serving vegan, vegetarian and flexitarian customers.
Thanks to the design of the PL Paddles, which rotate inside each other with a slight difference in height between them, the product is extremely homogenised and is ready to satisfy the taste of even the most demanding consumer.
**Extra tip: Lakidis PL180L, PL300L, PL450L & PL900L Mixers are used in the processing of variety food products . This is why they are the ideal solution in the plant-based industry, where products with different texture compose a “meatless” meal.
