Mintec Insight Series: Are plant-based products sold at (un)-justified premiums?

Mintec has teamed up with Simon Frost, founder of Frost Procurement Adventurer, to explore this topic over a series of insights pieces, focusing on the following areas:

  • What are plant-based proteins, and how do they compare to each other?

  • How and why does the cost structure of similar plant-based and non-plant-based products compare?

  • If there is a premium for producing plant-based products, is it justified?

  • How could this premium change over time?
