Meat towards decline?

Alternatives and possible future scenarios

According to the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the Blue Horizon Corporation, alternative protein sources, considered healthier and environmentally sustainable, will meet 11% of the market demand by 2035. It is estimated that after reaching the peak of meat consumption, estimated for 2025, in Europe and North America, there will be a strong growth of plant-based surrogates. The process will be favored by the good propensity of consumers, women in particular, towards products with a low environmental impact, less risky for health and respectful of animal welfare. 
These predictions also depend on how well food technology will be able to develop tasty, meat-like texture products at an affordable cost for all.
