Over the last twelve months, consumers have become more conscious about their health. For instance, in 2020 a total of 57% of consumers said that they deemed themselves vulnerable to disease and illness – compared to 38% who said this a year before. At the same time, satisfaction with immune health declined from 54% to 49% over the same period. This is due to the impact of the pandemic. Originally, concerns about the virus was about vulnerability to it, especially when less was known about how deadly it was. However over the last twelve months, consumers have had chance to re-evaluate and have taken a broader approach to health, recognizing that even if they were not necessarily vulnerable to problems arising from COVID-19, they were at risk of other long-term health problems. This is due to consumers recognizing that their dietary habits are not as healthy as they could be. As such, they are wanting to take a proactive approach to health maintenance – with 76% saying that they plan to eat and drink more healthily over the last twelve months.

Plant-Based Meat- An Emerging Market
What is plant-based meat? Plant-based meats are meat-like products that are expected to have the same taste, texture, and experience as that of animal meat and made from plant based ingredients.

The Bioautomated Algae Plantation
Amid extensive media coverage in 2018, one of the largest and first closed, year-round microalgae cultivation facilities in the world was officially opened in Bruck an der Leitha in Lower Austria. The photobioreactor system developed by Austrian-based ecoduna, which consists of 43,000 6-meter high glass tubes, is designed to produce roughly 100 tons of ultrapure algae powder annually. With its high concentrations of high grade vegan omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, natural color substances and micronutrients, plus essential amino acids, microalgae is considered a highly-sustainable and resource-efficient raw material of the future, particularly for the food industry. One of the key issues during research and development was the creation of an industrial-scale production infrastructure, which required an automated system for controlling the biological growth process. Over the course of the project, Endress+Hauser proved to be a highly-engaged, persistent partner. At that time still a startup, ecoduna was supported from the very beginning by the measurement technology specialist with both high-quality sensor technology and comprehensive expertise in the area of pH value and optical density (OD) measurements, two relevant pieces of the patented green technology puzzle.
