In the land of “milk and honey,” plant-based alternatives are on the rise and there is no end in site for the consumption of kindness, i.e. plant-based milks.

According to statistics by the Dairy Farmers of America the sales of milk dived by $1.1 billion dollars in 2018. In 2017, the sales of dairy products were $14.7 billion and dropped by eight percent in to 413.6 billion in 2018.

This shift of progressive consumers diving into the plant-based dairy sector has dairy farmers bailing left and right, Dean Foods one of the largest dairies in America, filed for bankruptcy just this past month.

The large undercover operation this past year by ARMS Investigators unveiling the reality of what goes on at Fair Oaks Farms sent dairy for a dive. Baby cows thrown in dead piles, kicked, punched, beat, and mother’s dragged with tractors when they could no longer move hit the airwaves.
People are waking up to the blatant cruelty and also the health consequences of consuming dairy.*

Currently the dairy-alternative industry is worth 17.3 billion and is expected to double to $29.6 billion by the year 2023. And the Almond milk market alone will be worth $13.3 billion by 2025 according to Grand View Research, Inc., stating that “Preference for vegan diet has influenced consumers to choose substitutes for cow milk.” “Plant-based alternatives are an emerging trend that can serve as an economical alternative for the developing countries and in places where animal milk supply is inadequate.” The dairy-alternatives industry is predicated to reach $35 billion by 2024, states the GVR report.

The day will come when cruel dairy will be obsolete and plant-based alternatives will rule the land. That day cannot be fast enough for the animals and planet.
