Joint paper calls for increase in R&I funding for plant-based foods

Bridge2Food Plant-Based Foods & Proteins EcoSystem is proud to partner with the European Alliance of Plant-Based Foods to lead a coalition of 60 organizations in a call to the European Commission to increase Horizon Europe research and innovation funding for plant-based foods. More research is needed to accelerate the shift toward diets that are sustainable and a key part of a healthy plan that’s good for both people and the planet.

Bridge2Food EcoSystem’s industry and research leaders are aligned with the paper’s goals to advance the transition to a plant-based diet with better foods produced in a sustainable way, as well as to increase food security with an abundant supply of proteins for food, feed and pet food markets, and to initiate 1 billion public-private partnerships by 2025.

The increased production and consumption of plant-based foods and proteins in Europe will facilitate the EU’s sustainable transition. It is therefore crucial that the European Commission ensure a research and innovation environment that provides more budget and opportunities for the development of concrete solutions to boost more sustainable, healthy and resilient consumption patterns.
