Written by: Edward Waddell
Plant-Based World Expo Europe returned last week at London Olympia with twice as much floorspace as the previous year, demonstrating the ‘huge growth and innovation’ that has taken place in the plant-based food sector in 2022.

The show welcomed a 94% increase in attendees compared to 2021, with visitors from across the food service, retail, distribution, and investment sectors, including senior decision-makers from the likes of Sodexo, ISS, Bidfood and Aramark.

The Culinary Theatre was a hive of activity with live cooking demonstrations using some of the most innovative plant-based products available. Over 150 exhibitors from around the world showcased the products capturing the attention of a wider pool of consumers to bring plant-based eating into the mainstream.

A spokesperson for Plant-Based Europe, said: “Future eating habits and new opportunities were at the heart of the show as the industry came together to reflect on the progress of the plant-based sector and explore what the next generation of plant-based eating looks like, with the latest innovations available on the show floor to taste.”

Plant-Based World Expo Europe has announced that the show will take place at the ExCeL, London’s biggest venue, for 2023.
