The demand for plant based meat is increasing significantly over the last few years, mostly because of its nutritional benefits such as being rich in calcium, antioxidants and phyto nutrients. With the onset of the huge demand for plant based meat, there have been numerous startups that rose to the occasion to meet the current demand.

Demand was instigated primarily by a conscientious shift of people wanting to lead a cruelty free and healthy lifestyle especially fuelled by the pandemic, considering that the coronavirus originated from a meat market.
