Plant-based foods are becoming more and more popular. People are consuming more for two main reasons: health and the environment. Noted researcher and professor, Dr Sylvain Charlebois joins me on the show today to talk about the plant-based (PB) movement.

Here are the highlights:

  • Food security vs food sovereignty
  • Plant-based protein vs meat
  • Access to plant-based food
  • Are processed plant-based foods affordable?
  • Are plant-based foods more sustainable?
  • How consumer attitudes have shifted
  • Who is driving the plant-based movement?
  • Home-cooking vs eating out during the pandemic
  • Why Beyond Meat should’ve been Canadian
  • Why are big companies like McDonald’s and Starbucks endorsing plant-based food?
