Spark Change brands elevate the plant-based movement

TAGS: General
Spark Change Trends plant-based ethics
These natural products brands in the Spark Change Product Discovery Zone reflect the trends identified by the New Hope Network content and NEXT Data and Insights teams for 2020 and beyond.

The Product Discovery Zone at Spark Change provides a great firsthand look at many of the brands exemplifying these trends and the macro forces that will shape this industry for years to come.

This Spark Change-inspired series will also shine the spotlight on some of these brands by highlighting a different trend each week.

Trend of the week: Plant-based Ethics

Brands exemplifying the Plant-based Ethics trend make it easy for consumers to choose plant-based products as they either reduce or avoid animal-based products entirely. This results in lowered greenhouse gas emissions and highlights the animal cruelty and pollution rampant in many conventional animal agriculture operations.

1. Beanfields

Beanfields' vegan and gluten-free snacks transform plants into the healthier versions of pork cracklins and cheesy tortilla chips that consumers want. Beanfields emphasizes the significant nutritional benefits of beans, which are an excellent source of plant-based fiber, protein and potassium. Find Beanfields in the Product Discovery Zone.

2. Lavva

Emerging alternative dairy company Lavva ditches sugar and other fillers in favor of delicious superfood plant-based ingredients like the Pili nut and plantains, and couples these with real fruit for a touch of sweetness. Lavva's clean ingredient list and vegan probiotic cultures help this brand stand out from other nondairy companies in the space. Find Lavva in the Product Discovery Zone.

3. Meatless Farm

Meatless Farm's product line spans from plant-based sausage links to versatile plant-based ground—all perfectly formulated to mimic the taste and texture of conventional meat. The company targets flexitarian consumers looking to reduce their meat intake and offers meatless meal solutions using its product on its website. Meatless Farm's Meatless Consumption Target encourages every household in the U.S. to make at least one meal each week be plant based (which would cut the country's greenhouse gas emissions by 470 million tons!). Find Meatless Farm in the Product Discovery Zone.
