Solution to Global Food Threat on Display at Plant Based World Expo Europe 2022

PRESS RELEASE

Solution to Global Food Threat on Display at Plant Based World Expo Europe 2022

Plant-based alternatives offer a solution to the increasing threat to food availability from shortages, climate change, and supply chain difficulties. To showcase the latest developments that can alleviate these significant challenges, Plant Based World Expo will return 30th November – 1st December as the only 100% plant-based event designed exclusively for foodservice and retail professionals, distributors, investors, and manufacturers.

Across two days at Olympia London, professionals can discover innovative plant-based products, hear from industry leaders and pioneers, and connect with the right people from the trade including retailers, caterers, investors, buyers, and distributors. There is also the chance to be amongst the first to sample mouth-watering plant-based food from ground-breaking international companies.

Jonathan Morley, Managing Director of the show organiser JD Events Ltd, comments: “Plant-based food presents a significant opportunity to overcome many of the most pressing food challenges, whilst allowing companies to lead the charge in protecting the environment. Innovation in this space is phenomenal, we’re regularly seeing companies raising millions in investment. With huge leaps in taste and texture, along with manufacturers scaling up their operations to reduce unit costs, the final hurdle is availability.”

The show floor will host the most exciting names, from the instantly recognisable to the start-ups quickly making their mark on this fast-paced industry. From Quorn and JUST, to Hlthpunk and Willicroft, exhibitors will cover categories from meat and dairy alternatives through to confectionary, all aimed at reducing the impact of food on the environment and improving health.

New for 2022 will be the Learning Garden Theatre. Taking place on the show floor and open to all attendees, the sessions will offer free, educational content for the whole industry.

A ticketed conference will also take place with content devised for retail and foodservice buyers, covering sustainability, the politics of food, catering for the next generation, elevating plant-based offerings, meeting the needs of new audiences, and the delivery market.

Elsewhere, the Culinary Theatre will host sessions run by a mixture of industry and celebrity chefs to provide a real-time showcase on how plant-based products can create exceptionally easy, and tasty, dishes.

Jonathan Morley concludes: “Plant-based is no longer a selection of bland, mushy vegetables squeezed into a breadcrumb coating. The breadth of innovation makes it the perfect solution to the ever-growing pressures on the food industry to find a solution to sustain the human population and protect our strained planet.

“We were humbled by the fantastic reception Plant Based World Expo Europe received in October 2021. There was so much hunger for our event that we have had to move our show for 2022 to Olympia London for a bigger space. I’m excited to see what this year brings.”
