- There is a future fast-approaching where animal products comprise a much smaller part of our diet. Instead, a greater part of our food will be plant-based.

- The research team at Wealthy VC has uncovered a brand new plant-based food company with a valuation so low that it could be similar to investing in Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND), which now trades for over $125, for under $1 per share.

A growly number of consumers are choosing plant-based foods over animal products, including animal lovers not wishing to harm animals, climate change activists who wish to reduce their carbon footprint, and those who are exploring the health benefits of a plant-based diet. So large is the movement towards a plant-based diet that investment bank Credit Suisse estimates the global vegan food industry to reach over $1.4 trillion by 2050.
The current trendy products are meat analogues. These are products that are plant-based but have a similar taste and mouthfeel as real meat. They’ve proven very popular with consumers looking to transition to a plant-based diet. So popular that meat analogues can now be found in nearly every major grocery store and even on the menu at fast-food restaurants.
There are other plant-based options beyond meat analogues, of course, and investors would be wise to diversify across the various subsectors. In addition to meat analogues, there are public companies selling dairy substitutes, protein substitutes and even plant-based frozen meals. Below are some of the contenders for leadership in their given subsectors.Source: Credit Suisse – The Sustainable Food Report 2021
Perhaps no publicly traded, plant-based company has been getting more press in recent years than Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND). Their Beyond Burger is a meat analogue that has proven very popular with meat-eaters. So popular, in fact, that in addition to being offered at leading retailers like Target and Wal-Mart, Beyond Burgers (and other Beyond Meats products) are available at popular chain restaurants, including Carl’s Jr., Dunkin and TGI Fridays.
As one of the leaders of the meat analogue segment, Beyond Meat stands to benefit greatly in the coming years as more and more people move away from red meat. However, the company (and other meat analogue companies) has to work on the nutritional benefits of their products, which are known for being highly processed and having calorie counts more akin to red meat than vegetables. When they figure out a way to address this issue and attract more health-conscious consumers, their investors should be richly rewarded.
ATTENTION INVESTORS: The Wealthy VC research team has uncovered a brand new stock with all the right ingredients to be the “Next Beyond Meat Multibagger”. This company, which generated over $50 million in pro forma revenue in 2020 and is on track to bring in over $75 million in 2021, is flying way under the radar. With BYND currently trading at over $126, this new stock trades at a fraction of the price at under $0.70 per share
Ingredion (NYSE: INGR) doesn’t have the name recognition of Beyond Meats, but it is just as large of a player in the plant-based industry. They sell a meat analogue, but that is just one of their many products. They also sell a wide range of plant-based substitutes for dairy and baking applications.
While other large plant-based companies are more consumer-focused, Ingredion derives a large share of its revenue from supplying vegan bakeries, coffee shops and other restaurants serving plant-based food. Much of the company’s products are as nutritious or more so than the products they are replacing, so many health-focused restaurants will be using their products. As the world opens back up and people start to go back to restaurants again, Ingredion should have many growth opportunities.
While meat analogues have been all the rage recently, dairy substitutes have been a major part of the plant-based industry for some time. Oatly (NASDAQ: OTLY) is a Swedish company that is one of the world’s leading providers of dairy substitutes. As the name implies, their products are derived from oats. Compared to milk from cows, the company claims their oat-based dairy substitute saves 80% of emissions, 79% of land usage and 60% of energy usage.
Oatly’s target consumers are coffee/tea drinkers, and their products reflect as much. Oatmilk is their claim to fame. The product comes in various formats, including the top-selling Barista Edition, which is optimized for mixing into coffee/tea in place of milk and is available at over 32,000 coffee shops. The company also sells their products, including oat-based ice cream, directly to consumers at over 60,000 retail locations as their products check.
The future of food is becoming clearer: meat is on the way out, and plant-based foods are on the way in. Whether consumers are buying a Beyond Meats burger at their local fast food restaurant, enjoying cake made with Ingredion products or having Oatly dairy replacement in their morning coffee, the plant-based food industry is not just a passing trend but a permanent part of our collective diet.
Investors would be wise to cash in on the opportunity before these plant-based companies grow to their full potential. Impossible Foods, maker of the popular Impossible Burger, is expected to IPO shortly, possibly creating the world’s largest plant-based company.
While the above companies are among the industry leaders, they are not necessarily the best investments at the moment. Their successes and the accompanying attention have caused investors to pile in, stretching valuations. While early investors were rewarded handsomely, anyone buying in now will experience much smaller returns. Fortunately, there are opportunities for investors in smaller plant-based companies.
The plant-based foods sector is currently experiencing exponential growth, and with leading investment bank Credit Suisse projecting the global vegan food industry to soar to over $1.4 trillion by 2050, investors will be happy to know that the best is yet to come. While the plant-based foods space is still in its infancy, the red hot sector is already churning out big winners for investors. Take industry leader Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND) for example, early investors in BYND saw potential gains of over 420% in only 3 months.
If you missed out on BYND, don’t sweat it, the plant-based foods market is just getting started and new opportunities will be abundant. In fact, for those investors interested in getting involved in the next big ground floor vegan foods opportunity, you’re in luck.
