How MorningStar Farms is leading by example in the plant-based foods category – podcast

Understanding evolving consumer needs has been critical to exploding the plant-based foods category, said Sara Young, vice president and general manager of MorningStar Farms & Plant Based Proteins at Kellogg Co.

Consumer demand for sustainable products and knowledge of the health benefits of protein has driven the need for plant-based proteins. A decade ago, soy-based veggie burgers were the primary plant protein-rich food found in a typical grocery store. Fast forward to 2019, and products made with plant proteins have evolved to include a wide variety of flavors, textures and formats for every eating occasion. Listen to Sara Young, vice president and general manager of Morningstar Farms & Plant Based Proteins at Kellogg Co., and Judie Bizzozero, senior editor, Natural Products INSIDER, discuss:
