“Plant-based foods have a lower impact on the environment,” Catherine Lefranc-Millot, nutrition and health senior research manager with Roquette, says in this video from a question during a webinar on the need for more research and budgets for plant-based foods to help accelerate the shift to sustainable food systems.
“Plant-based diets offer a lot of nutritional and health benefits in line with WHO recommendations.”
“It’s totally obvious we need to make this transition for our environment and for our health,” agreed Sonja Kalkhoven, R&D director at Upfield.
The webinar was in advance of our Plant-Based Foods & Proteins Summit Europe, 21-23 June in the Netherlands. Track IV, Value Chain Research Investments, will be focused exclusively on the topic.

It was part of a joint initiative led by Bridge2Food and the European Alliance for Plant-Based Foods (EAPF), as a coalition of more than 60 organisations calls on the European Commission to increase Horizon Europe R&I funds for plant-based foods. As part of this initiative the two organizations released a joint letter and a joint paper. As well, 11 thought-leaders created videos discussing the need for increased funding, watch here.
