The increase in the production of «Plant Based» products is generating major changes in various segments of both the production, marketing and promotion of this segment in the diet of people who have already passed the vegetarian and vegan segment, being adopted by a significant percentage of people who want to change their eating habits.

The development of companies that are working in the FoodTech niche is generating a great opportunity to worry beyond the final consumer who buys these products, but rather, the fields around the world where the necessary ingredients are being produced for the manufacture of innovative foods such as mayonnaise, hamburgers, milk, ice cream, among others.

“There are interesting challenges around the AgTech development of technologies around agriculture since this increase in the consumption of certain vegetables such as pineapple, peas, cabbage and other ingredients for the production of “plant based products” is generating a new way of seeing to agriculture due to the need to support the communities that are cultivating since impacts are also generated in the territories around water management, farm work and the lives of the people who produce these vital elements.” notes Agricultural Engineer, Maximiliano Morales.

According to Sergio Bustos Cabrera, AmixTech consultant: “This is why, together with Maximiliano Morales and a team of professionals, we launched the area of ​​strategic projects to meet the needs of FoodTech – AgTech companies in Chile and abroad, in particular the first period when a company starts looking for where it is going to buy or produce the vegetables, fruits and grains that are required for the production of its plant based products. We are convinced that this current need of companies around the world of the “plant based” niche is generating impacts in the fields where they are being produced due to an increased demand for these fruits, grains and vegetables.

This specialization in the Plant Based niche by the founder of AndesWines.com emerged years ago when Maximiliano Morales worked as a strategic advisor for the innovation agency of Chile, CORFO and then was Manager of program Nodo Estratégico Chile Vitivinícola 2.0, where 4 strategic axes were defined: Climate Change, Development of New Products and image.

At the end of this consultancy, the professional focused on working in the niche of plant based products throughout the production and marketing chain, starting by analyzing the factors that were going to impact the territories where the vegetables, fruits and grains used are being produced in the manufacture of these innovative products.

Last year, Maximiliano Morales while working as a Wine Specialist aboard Silver Cloud Expedition Ship – «Culinary Voyage» presented a lecture about «plant based» products, generating great debate with passengers around the issue of where the products used in the production of this new food category came from.
