Increasingly, consumers are buying and eating local food for many reasons – freshness, taste, health, the environment, local economic development, and support for local farmers. As local food continues to grow in popularity, communities are organising ways to access sustainable and locally-grown food. These include farmers markets, community shared agriculture, box programs, local marketing groups, and retail stores. However, the recent awareness of the limits of natural resources and pollution of soil, air and water, is pushing for sustainable farming. It is a turnaround for agricultural tourism as vegetarian meat substitutes can reduce environmental pollution and push sustainable farming. Therefore, this research will state how Taiwan use own agricultural resources are transformed into vegetarian meat substitutes, which promotes the progress of agricultural tourism.
