Capturing the Plant-Based Snack Trend:10 New Wholesale Vegetarian Snacks to Fuel Your Shop

As consumers continue to reduce their meat intake, it’s important to ensure that your store can keep up with the increasing demand for healthy plant-based snacks. This increase in vegetarian and vegan consumers, and their attraction to healthier snacking options, means that shop owners need to ensure they’re staying ahead of competitors by stocking up on a variety of healthy wholesale vegetarian snacks in their stores.

The movement away from meat and dairy products

The Gen Z and Millennial generations are moving towards a plant-based diet quicker than any other generation, and are quickly becoming the largest shopper group in this area. Heavily conscious of their own health and their impact on the environment, they are expected to be almost entirely responsible for the growth of dairy and meat alternatives through 2024. These consumers expect shops to cater for their needs and preferences, making it essential for shop owners to provide a variety of tasty but healthy vegetarian and vegan snacking options in the shops.

With there being a whopping 47,079 convenience stores in the UK at the beginning of 2022, the importance of adapting and keeping up with the latest dieting trends has only continued to grow.
