Plant-based food stocks are companies that produce meat and other vegan food from plants. These food items are getting popular as consumers have become aware of the negative impact of animal farming on their health and environment. Plant-based food includes almond milk substitutes for dairy milk and meat made from flour, concentrates, soybean, tofu, or lentils.

The plant-based food industry is expected to see compound growth in the future, say experts.
