Setting the Example 
  • Can meat-free companies win over carnivores?
    Meat-free enterprises are booming, with U.S. consumers spending $2.6 billion a year on soy-based food and drink, not to mention on affiliated industries such as leather-free shoes and clothing. The big question is whether the brands can win over meat-eating consumers along with their core vegetarian demographic. "We do have something to offer to people [who aren't motivated by] the ethics behind it. I believe that's an incentive for some, but you also have to blow someone away with functionality and design," says vegan-clothing entrepreneur Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart.
