 I'm not sure I follow this reasoning. If people are willing to pay more for alternatives that support their values, that sounds like (so to speak) a recipe for supermarket success, at least in neighborhoods where such people shop. Replacing all meat, everywhere, is a much more ambitious goal than satisfying a niche market.

 If it's not affordable for environmental reasons, it probably won't be as a meal alternative at the grocery store. People doing things because of their values are likely to pay higher prices for products that support those values than the person just thinking of their food budget. Or, that's been my experience as a long-time member of a food co-op in the sort of neighborhood where you see all these signs about how inclusive they are. Meaning their values are extremely important to them. And they went out of their way to buy ecologically correct products at higher prices.
