2022 Annual Review
2022 was a year of firsts for the plant-based movement – from the first plant-based pavilion at COP (the UN’s annual climate-change conference) to ProVeg being approved as an international NGO in China, the first such approval for a plant-based non-profit.
We’ve put together this report for you so that you can see how your support has helped us to progress towards key milestones for the plant-based movement – and how your help is needed now more than ever. In order to continue this vitally important work, we need to continually raise awareness about the benefits of plant-based diets and make sure that food systems are prioritised in all corners of the world. Your support helps to make a big difference!
You can read about everything you helped to achieve in our 2022 Annual Review.
Letter from Sebastian Joy,
Dear Partners and Supporters,
As we leave 2022 behind, there is much to celebrate. ProVeg has persevered through the many challenges entailed in leading food-system transformation for a better world, which also underscores the necessity of the work we do. Our global teams doubled down in their efforts to advance plant-forward policy, innovation, and business development, and increase awareness about the crucial role of food-system transformation in addressing many of the world’s most pressing problems.
Of course, we wouldn’t be able to do this without your support, which is the lifeblood that enables us to work toward a more sustainable future for everyone.
So, on behalf of everyone at ProVeg, I extend my thanks to you all!
This year, thanks to your ongoing support, we launched the New Food Hub, yet another game changing platform that highlights the developments in and marketing of alternative proteins. The New Food Hub serves as a resource centre for food professionals worldwide, and equips them with the tools they need to harness the power of plant-based foods and ingredients, as well as fermented and cultivated alternatives.
Another major cause of celebration is the addition of a new ProVeg country. As of 2022, ProVeg is now an International NGO in China, the first such approval for a plant-based non-profit working in the alternative-protein space. This exciting development will enable us to connect with businesses across the country and make a greater impact – not only in China but way beyond – since the country’s significance in terms of global food-system transformation cannot be overestimated.
2023 will be a year of great progress, which we hope will see ProVeg becoming the go-to organisation for food-system change. In order to achieve this, our teams will double down on their efforts to see the ProVeg Incubator recognised as the top food-tech programme, globally. Increased lobbying at international levels will enable us to create maximum impact and gain standing, while strengthening and initiating new collaborations at the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) will enable us to take our mission to the world’s stage.
Here’s looking forward to another successful year!
