Meat Substitutes Still a Tiny Sliver of U.S. Meat Market

...As the following chart nicely illustrates, we are still in the very early stages of the transition towards more sustainable meat alternatives. According to data from Statista’s Consumer Market Outlook, plant-based meat substitutes accounted for a tiny sliver of the U.S. meat market last year. Not counting insect-based meat alternatives or cultured, i.e. lab-grown meat, meat substitute sales amounted to $1.3 billion in 2021, while sales of fresh and processed meat added up to almost $160 billion.
