The Chinese meat-free market has boomed in recent years, growing 33.5 percent since 2014. With a value of just under $10 billion two years ago, it is predicted to be with $11.9 billion by 2023.

Interest in vegan food in China has been fuelled by the coronavirus pandemic, which is believed to have started at a live animal market in the country.

Other big food companies — such as Cargill — are also looking to develop their presence in the Asian plant-based meat market.
