Group aims to have €1bn-a-year plant-based foods business by 2028, after success of its vegan products
Unilever has said expanding its range of plant-based foods is one of its new strategic priorities as the FTSE 100 company zooms in on the fastest-growing consumer markets.
The group, which is behind household names such as Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream, Marmite and Dove soap, wants to have a €1bn(£865m)-a-year plant-based foods business in five to seven years’ time. That compares with a €200m business today.
