Daiya Foods, Canada, unveiled several new plant-based innovations.
"Although more consumers are exploring plant-based eating, they are concerned that it might mean having to sacrifice the taste and texture they've come to love," says Dan Hua, vice president of marketing. "At Daiya, we began our journey as a leading lifestyle brand in the plant-based movement over a decade ago, never wavering on our promise to deliver on a variety of flavor offerings without compromising on nutrition and taste. We are showing our latest foods to demonstrate that plant-based eating can be truly delicious."
