“There is an urgent need to increase the funding for the plant-based foods sector,” says Siska Pottie, secretary general of the European Alliance for Plant-based Foods (EAPF.)
Pottie will be speaking at our Plant-Based Foods & Proteins Summit Europe, 21-23 June in the Netherlands, on the need for more research and budgets for plant-based foods to help accelerate the shift to more sustainable and healthy food systems.
Bridge2Food and EAPF are leading a coalition of more than 60 organisations calling on the European Commission to increase Horizon Europe R&I funds for plant-based foods. As part of the initiative the two organizations released a joint letter, a joint paper and key leaders discussed the issues in a webinar, you can read about the conversation and watch the videos here. As well, 10 thought-leaders created videos discussing the need for increased funding, watch here.
