The following are just some of the many, innovative projects ProVeg supports around the world to promote the use of plant-based products and reduce the global consumption of animals by 50% by the year 2040 (50by40).

ProVeg Germany

Flagship Project: New Food Conference

‘New protein’ is one of the most discussed topics in the global food industry, but until now there hasn’t been an international conference in Europe exploring developments in plant-based and cultured animal products. It is a unique event focused on solutions to our currently unsustainable food system and aims to increase media attention and public awareness around these topics. The conference will also promote networking among our industry partners while bringing together international stakeholders from the food industry, along with startups, investors, social and natural scientists, the media, politicians, and consumer organisations.

ProVeg United States

Flagship Project: Net Impact Conference 2019

Our ProVeg US team attended the Net Impact Conference in Detroit, Michigan where ProVeg US has been responsible for training a cohort of “plant-based fellows” who are in the process of obtaining their MBA degrees and want to use their skills to drive the plant-based movement forward. We also exhibited and hosted talks and a dinner.

ProVeg Poland

Flagship Project: New Food Forum

The New Food Forum was the first business event in Poland exploring plant-based solutions and the latest trends in the food market. The forum attracted business owners, producers, trade networks, food distributors, journalists, and governmental and non-governmental organisations. Analyses of successfully introduced plant products, financing options, certifications, current market trends, and new technologies were presented. This first edition was widely commented on in the World of Science, Forbes, The Telegraph and the Polish-language publication Polityka.

ProVeg Spain

You will receive a 7-day menu prepared by our dietitian as well as a detailed shopping list. In each of the daily newsletters, there will be a focus on a different vegetable protein, with information about its properties, where to buy it, and how best to cook it.

ProVeg United Kingdom

Flagship Project: VegMed 

The London edition of Vegmed was a great success, with around 300 people in attendance on each day. The event was held at King’s College London and included full vegan catering, even including the pastries at the cafe! Key speakers included Dr Michael Greger, Dr Michael Klapper and Dr Neal Barnard, as well as many others. Big thanks to the UK team and everyone else involved for making this happen so smoothly and so successfully.

ProVeg South Africa

Flagship Project: Braai day

Braai Day, ProVeg SA’s annual Heritage Day event, was hosted in September, together with partners who share the organisation’s concern for animals and the environment. The event was a community-led bring & braai (the South African word for ‘barbecue’) where everyone was welcome and guests were encouraged to bring along vegan food that represents their heritage. In addition to delicious vegan meals, ProVeg organised live music, lawn games, a lucky draw, and a jumping castle for kids.
