Gama spoke to Jacek Plewa, General Manager, Global Food Industries.
What overarching trends do you expect to shape frozen food innovation in 2020 and beyond?
“The major, game changing development for frozen (and chilled) categories is growth in plant-based protein products, which is going to be exponential and is en-route to taking plant-based products mainstream, evolving from a niche protein to a major centre-of-plate contender, suggesting that a major transformation is underway in how we produce and consume food. The industry has managed to develop products that match up to the taste profiles and expectations of meat eaters and has received lots of publicity and support from renowned opinion makers, investors and celebrities. The trend is global, and in the Middle East region we are the front runners, with our award-winning Healthy Farm Plant Based Burgers range”.
