From 2013 to 2016, the global plant-based milk market grew by 35%. By 2024, this market’s expected to be worth approximately $6.4 billion. Are you contributing to the growth of this market?

No fear of the cows being put out of work just yet. Of course most of you know that plant-based milks are vegan-friendly and are suitable..
