Nestlé CEO Mark Schneider said at the Fortune Global Forum in Paris that the big business opportunity America is bringing down overall meat consumption by getting consumers to replace cow-based patties with plant-based ones. It’s a shift that’s essential to making progress on public health and sustainability, he noted. 

Nestlé has been working on plant-based proteins since the late 1980s and that its expertise has helped the company get product to market quickly. Nestlé has made its own run at the growing plant-based burger industry with what Schneider calls its “triple play”—a bacon cheeseburger.
