Many people are trying to become much more healthy and in many respects that includes eating a diet which includes more plant-based foods. This trend has not gone unnoticed in the business and commercial world in Canada. Some companies are getting in on the plant-based diet trend, which is reflective of the products they're starting to offer. In fact, one of Canada's largest food manufacturers, Maple Leaf Foods Inc., is so into the idea of plant-based products that it will soon be opening a multi-million dollar processing plant Stateside.
Leading experts in the food industry say this new trend is anything but a fad. Companies wouldn't be investing millions of dollars for something they believe people are treating as a passing fancy. Maple Leaf Foods already started investigating the prospects five years ago, making the decision to move forward for a number of reasons, including the escalating cost of meat products.
Fast food chains like Burger King and A&W have also included plant-based items on their menus. Larger manufacturing companies like Nestle and Tyson Foods have followed in Maple Leaf Foods' footsteps and are creating meatless products to keep up with burgeoning consumer demand. Private companies in the vegan food industry are also teaming up with larger counterparts in merger deals.
As the values and lifestyles of Canadians change, business and commercial endeavours tend to reflect those changes. A lawyer in Canada is well-positioned to offer advice and guidance to entrepreneurial clients looking to venture into a new line of business or with expansion. Having an experienced lawyer on the team can help make deal-making a much smoother process in terms of its legalities.
