Do you need to understand the vegan marketplace and why consumers are buying plant-based?
The plant-based sector is like no other you will have operated in. The consumer is a moving target whose demands and buying behaviour changes as they evolve along their plant-based journey. Lisa and David have consulted with some of the biggest brands in the world to help them understand the plant-based marketplace and consumer: from high-street QSR and restaurant chains looking to improve their vegan offerings, to global manufacturers wanting to understand the opportunities for them in the plant-based market.
This might be a workshop with your leadership team to help them understand the marketplace and consumer, through to ongoing support and consultancy to help you get your plant-based option right.

Bringing in Lisa and David made us realise just how little we understood of why plant-based consumers would want to buy from us. Their insight throughout this process has proved invaluable.
Head of NPD, major high-street QSR chain
We knew we had to enter the plant-based market but we put the hand-break on when we realised we just didn’t understand it. Now we feel we’ve got all the knowledge to develop our offering with confidence.
Brand Manager, global manufacturing company
We couldn’t have done this without David and Lisa’s input – and it all started with their workshop with our team and now we’ve launched a Vegan Society registered product into the market.
