Meal replacement shakes have grown from a niche product to a hugely successful category, driven by an increasing consumer preference for quick and convenient, but nutritionally balanced, meals. As product ranges expand rapidly, from powders to bottled drinks and bars, we speak to the CEOs of two pioneers in the sector, Huel and Feed, about their ambitions to create replacement options for every meal in the day.

Also in this issue, we explore the nutrition trends shaking up the food industry, take a look at market opportunities created by the emergence of vegetarianism in China, and find out why 3D printing is becoming a game-changer for the manufacture of meat replacement products. 

Plus, we hear from Danone CEO Emmanuel Faber why social responsibility is a vital element to business success, find out how elemental analysis can help to improve transparency and quality control in the food supply chain, and much more.
