We´re delighted to share with you the official launch of the Global Plant-Based Foods EcoSystem, a unique platform where more than 100 industry leaders across the value chain have been collaborating on shaping a global plant-based foods research agenda since 2019. It is exclusive and on invitation-basis only.
The aim of the Global Plant-Based Foods Ecosystem is to accelerate the transition towards a more plant-based diet, with better foods, produced in a sustainable way, as well as increase food security with an abundant supply of proteins for food, feed, and pet food markets. It also aims to initiate €1 Billion Public-Private Partnerships by 2025.
