That could be a powerful catalyst for companies such as Komo Plant Based Foods (CSE:YUM)(OTC:KOMOF( FRA:9HB), Rritual Superfoods Inc. (CSE:RSF)(OTC:RRSFF), Very Good Food Company Inc. (CSE:VERY)(OTC:VRYYF), good natured Products Inc. (TSXV:GDNP)(OTC:SLGBF), and Oatly Group (NASDAQ:OTLY). In addition, “Credit Suisse emphasizes that the growing plant-based market could be profitable to investors worldwide because the plant-based market is growing faster each year, and with exponential growth, investors will need to change their priorities with the quickly shifting market,” added The Beet.
