Organic Plant Based Expo 2022: 100% organic
It’s been 3 years since Dansk Vegetarisk Forening held a similar event. Since then, the covid pandemic has put almost all large events on hold. Which is why this years Organic Plant Based Expo has been eagerly awaited. «The Expo in 2019 was a huge success with a massive turnout. And now we’re back, hopefull bigger than ever,» says Mie Nordly from The Vegetarian Society of Denmark, who is one of the driving forces behind the expo.
Organic Plant Based Expo 2022 will be 100% organic
This time the event is 100% organic and happening with the kind support of the foundation «Fonden for økologisk landbrug» and Organic Plant Protein. This is because the core values of organic and plant-based production are the same when it comes to sustainability and protection of our environment and climate as well as animal welfare.
In the plant based organic market, Denmark has a particular position and is a global front runner when it comes to high quality organic foods, plant proteins and meat alternatives.
The future is plant-based
Organic Plant Protein A/S is the main sponsor of the expo. They see the expo as a golden opportunity to promote the best plant-based food Denmark has to offer. «It’s important that the plant-based expo is 100% organic. Also, it’s an amazing time to show the consumers and professional kitchens that we have locally produced food of absolute top class when it comes to taste. This way we hope to do our part in reducing our far too extensive intake of meat,» say Fie Graugaard and Ulrich Kern-Hansen, from Organic Plant Protein A/S.
«There are so many possibilities on the organic, plant-based market with quality goods»
The Vegetarian Society of Denmark and their partners hope that the expo will show all guests a variety of healthy and climate-friendly, plant-based food. On a global scale the plant based market is growing rapidly, and Denmark has a lot of large and small businesses ready to conquer this market.
«There are so many possibilities on the organic, plant-based market with quality goods. We all have to consume less meat and other animal products in the future if we are to reach our climate goals. This expo is a golden opportunity to see and taste the food of the future, and we are planning on a large turnout on both days,» says Mie Nordly.
