Insights, the global market for plant-based ice-creams will reach a value of US $1 billion by the end
of 2017 and is estimated to reach a value of $2.45

The plant-based ice cream trend has caught the
attention of large ice cream manufacturers including Ben & Jerry’s, Breyers and Häagen-Dazs, all of

ice cream options in four flavors: Chunky Monkey,
Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Coffee Caramel Fudge

ice cream sold exclusively at Target in four flavors:

yogurt chain, partnered with Dole Packaged Foods
to add six vegan flavors of Dole Whip soft serve

Based mostly on whey protein, nutrition and
performance products were originally marketed to
bodybuilders, weightlifters and athletes. The market
is still heavily dominated by whey protein products,
but it is no longer strictly for athletes. It is marketed
to and used by people with active lifestyles. Now
consumers are looking for non-dairy nutrition and
performance protein alternatives and plant-based
proteins are becoming increasingly popular. There
has been a flurry of activity in plant-based protein
powders, ready-to-drink protein beverages and
Gold’s Gym partnered with C+A Global to
develop Gold’s Gym’s own line of protein powders.
The Nature Supreme is 100% plant-based protein,
gluten free, vegan, non-GMO, soy free and kosher.
