Plant Based World Expo will return from 30 November to 1 December as the only 100% plant-based event designed exclusively for foodservice and retail professionals, distributors, investors and manufacturers. This year, the event will showcase the latest developments in plant-based food and explore how these innovations can help protect the environment, boost public health and alleviate challenges caused by supply chain issues.
Taking place at Olympia London, professionals can discover innovative plant-based products, hear from industry leaders and pioneers, and connect with world-leading retailers, caterers, investors, buyers and distributors. Visitors will also have the opportunity to be amongst the first to sample mouthwatering plant-based food from groundbreaking international companies.
The show floor will host some of the industry’s most exciting brands, including household names and the start-ups quickly making their mark on this fast-paced industry. From plant-based meat and dairy alternatives to confectionery, exhibitors – including Quorn, Just, Hlthpunk and Willicroft – will showcase a range of products aimed at reducing the impact of food on the environment and improving health.
The new Learning Garden Theatre will join the show for 2022. Taking place on the show floor and open to all attendees, the theatre will host free educational sessions 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 masterclasses run by industry and celebrity chefs to demonstrate how plant-based products can create exceptionally easy and tasty dishes.
Jonathan Morley, managing director of the show’s organiser, JD Events, commented: “Plant-based food presents a significant opportunity to lead the charge in protecting the environment and overcome many of the most pressing food challenges. Innovation in this space is phenomenal: plant-based is no longer a selection of bland, mushy vegetables squeezed into a breadcrumb coating.
“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.”
