Alfano started the Plantbased Business Hour at the onset of
COVID-19. “During this time of incredible stress and worry, many people
want news and insight as to how things will be different in the future
so that we don’t find ourselves right back in this same position.
Investors and consumers are interested in the plant-based arena as they
search for healthier options, a safer food supply and the money-making
future of food. The Plantbased Business Hour and my interviews on same
give the leaders in this sector a platform to share their strategies and
advancements in plant-based innovation with the general public, while
also giving an insight into their personalities and quirks which make
the businesses run."
As noted above, in addition to NPR on PBH, Elysabeth speaks with venture
capitalists, CEOs, innovators, analysts, entrepreneurs, and more. The
conversations cover a myriad of topics from impact investing to the
newest plant-based and cellular agriculture innovations... and now taste
Plant-based business represents not only big money, but also the big
solution for a healthier food supply. Meat-borne pathogens are an
expensive threat to our physical, financial and mental health, as we are
currently experiencing with Coronavirus. During COVID-19, plant-based
products have soared. Accoring to Nielsen, plant-based products
experienced a growth of 240% for a 13-week period ending May 30 as
compared to the same period in 2019, and more investment dollars were
spent in the first quarter of 2020 than all of 2019, according to the
Good Food Institute.
