Exploring Behavior Changes Toward Sustainable Nutrition
How can we (food industry) act to speed up consumers’ switches towards diets with less meat and more plant-based proteins?

1) Is there a way to create a movement that goes beyond hipsters / trend followers or
even vegans/vegetarians into something that impacts a wide number of people – e.g.
at lower middle class or mainstream consumer?
2) What can industry do to create a greater demand for sustainable nutrition food
products – for instance that facilitate the consumption of meals with less/no meat
that are found in ‘ordinary’ supermarkets, that are regularly eaten and not only for
niche, special, premium, once-off products?
3) What kind of benefits can be used to motivate consumers to make switches to more
sustainable nutrition, e.g. more plant-based eating, or meat alternatives or reduced
amount of meat? We are interested in benefits that are technically feasible and have
minimum impact on profitability.
4) How important is it to communicate environment, social or health benefits to
motivate consumers to move to more sustainable diets, such as more plant-based
products or less/no meat?
5) What role can social media play to support this switch and how can the industry use
this in a credible and motivating way?What kind of partnerships with the industry will
help drive consumer change towards sustainable nutrition, such as more plant-based
