Plant-based foods have taken the market by storm as health, wellbeing, and sustainability are increasingly becoming the core drivers of consumer choice. Today’s consumers are reassessing what they eat and its impact on the planet. With the growing awareness around the unfair practices and environmental impact of animal rearing for food, alternatives to animal-origin food products including meat, dairy and eggs are being sought after, although no consumer wants to compromise on the quality, nutrition or sensory experience.
At Symega, we strive to be India’s first fully integrated and sustainable manufacturer of plant-based foods. Right from extruded protein to final products like burger patties, beverages or cheese, Symega excels in developing and manufacturing healthy, nutritious, cruelty-free and retail-ready products for our customers aiding their speed to market for a plant-based future.
