Innovation in the plant-based meat industry with Jody & Todd Boyman of Hungry Planet
The plant-based meat industry has grown exponentially within the past few years. With a few brands entering the foodservice space and releasing innovative new products – there’s no doubting that the market will continue to grow. This week on Beyond the Shelf we spoke to the Co-Founders of Hungry Planet, Jody & Todd Boyman. In this episode, we discussed how Jody’s decision to go plant-based as a teenager prompted them to create a line of truly plant-based meat alternatives that are meant to be used as direct substitutions for traditional meat products. Todd & Jody shared why they believe it’s important to appeal to flexitarians (those who are looking to cut down on their meat consumption), and how entering the foodservice industry has helped grow their business.
