100% Vegan Vegetable Pizza Bases enters the Australian Market
When it comes to healthy food, you may have noticed a sudden change in consumer preferences. There has been an influx of demand for healthy food alternatives, following a shift to build healthier lifestyle choices.
The shift to a healthier lifestyle
When browsing your grocery supermarket shelves, you may have noticed the increase in healthy food ranges.
Well, that’s because there are more brands taking advantage of the health food boom. This major food and lifestyle trend is here to stay with evergreen consumption taking over the food and drink industry.
Many Australians are even ditching medicinal health treatments with hopes to find preventative alternatives through natural and organic foods.
Though, the shift to a healthier lifestyle is not as straight forward as it may seem. Each person has a different approach when it comes to what ‘healthier’ is for them. This brings forward the vast approaches to seeking a healthy lifestyle:
Rising lifestyle changes:
- Purchasing only ethical food products
- Closely monitoring brands and food labels
- Introduction or reduction of specific food types
- Increasing active state
- Forming new daily habits that positively impact the environment
Popular dietary changes:
- Low calories
Serving this shift
Large supermarkets and fast-food chains are accommodating this lifestyle shift within recent years. Major supermarket chains have ditched plastic bags, creating a recycling scheme and have started stocking a range of plant-based meat alternatives on their shelves.
Major fast food chains have also introduced new ingredients to accommodate this shift, with Dominos supplying vegan cheese options, and Hungry Jacks introducing their 100% Vegan burger. These changes came with some controversy but proved to be a major success with the public.
So, with steps taken from the large companies, there is an obvious demand and importance surrounding the certainty of demand in dietary requirements and choices.
