More and more meat lovers are consciously opting for days without meat. No Meat Today Company ensures that its customers have a choice of tasty and responsible meat substitutes. For our customers, we are the reliable partner they know from their cooperation with our parent company, Van Loon Group.
In 2040, the world population is expected to spend 450 billion dollars on meat substitutes. Growth will be particularly rapid in Europe, the USA and Southeast Asia. The growing demand and constantly improving production techniques ensure that the price of meat substitutes will eventually be comparable to that of regular meat.

* How will cultured meat and meat alternatives disrupt the agricultural and food industry?
Due to the rapidly rising demand, product development is going fast. In addition to familiar products such as hamburgers, sausages and nuggets, we will see countless familiar and new variants, made from various raw materials. Taste and texture, local dietary needs and ease of preparation are the drivers of product development.
A lot of research is being done into the various target group segments; vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians. It is in the latter segment in particular where major growth lies. Recent research* shows that 42% of consumers worldwide avoid certain animal products in their diet, but do not follow a strict vegetarian or vegan diet. The proportion of vegans and vegetarians is still relatively small; 4% and 6.4% respectively.
So it is a growing group worldwide that wants to be conscious of health, the environment and animal welfare. By having this group choose a meatless day just a little more often, the impact will increase enormously.
