Why Certify?

Brand Equity

Driving sales. Plant-based products are the fastest dollar growth trend in the marketplace today. The total market for the plant-based foods sector in 2017 (excluding data from Whole Foods Market) tops $5 billion in sales, according to data from the retail consumer insights, SPINS, and released by the Plant Based Foods Association.

In demand

The latest data compiled by Nielsen showed an 8.1 percent growth for plant-based foods last year. These sales spikes in plant-based foods mirror similar trends in organic food growth over the last several decades as consumers continue to seek out cleaner ingredients that are better for their health, the health of the planet, farmers, and the billions of factory farmed animals. “Over the last three years, the number of people eating a vegan, plant-based diet in the US has increased by a whopping 600 percent,” Nathan Runkle, founder and president of Mercy For Animals.

Green Impact

Based on findings from TSC’s 2017 Impact Report, applying sustainable practices is more than a trend—it’s a necessity in a world of ever-shrinking natural resources. Businesses are in a unique position to capitalize on the environmental anxieties of millennials.

As a 2015 study by The Nielsen Company suggests, despite high unemployment rates and low wages, millennials are willing to spend more for products that are environmentally friendly [1]. Just over the span of one year, millennials willing to pay more for products and services from companies committed to positive environmental and social change increased from 55% in 2014 to 72% in 2015 [2]
