What is a meat substitute?

A meat substitute, also known as a meat alternative or mock meat, is a food product that is designed to replace the taste, texture, and nutritional profile of the meat. It is typically made from plant-based ingredients or other non-meat sources, and it can be used in place of meat.

The health benefits associated with these ingredients are almost similar to real meat, and this is a major factor behind the rising demand for meat substitutes.


There was a spike in the sales of meat substitutes in 2020, increasing sales as compared to 2019. The disruption in the supply chain of the meat market due to the Covid-19 pandemic positively impacted the meat substitute market. Hence notable growth in the market was observed in the year 2020.
