Plant Based World Conference & Expo 2019

Join the Plant Based World Conference & Expo 2019 in New York City, which is set to bring the plant-based movement to a mainstream audience. This is the only event in the world dedicated to connecting plant-based brands with an audience of retailers, food service professionals and consumers!


The buzz around plant-based foods and products is undeniable and there is a growing number of innovative new brands in the market. In recent years Denmark has seen an increase in new players on the plant-based marked as well as an expansion in the range of products. Danes that mainly eat plant-based products have increased from 8% of the population in 2017 to 12% in 2018. In the US there is a growing marked for plant-based products. Even though the number of people describing themselves as vegetarians (5%) or vegans (3%) are stable, the sale of plant-based food grew with 8.1% in 2017 in the US, indicating an overall interest in this product category.

The Plant Based World Conference & Expo is an event designed to bring the plant-based conversation to the mainstream audience by creating experiences for business-, consumer- and healthcare audiences. The fair will feature an exhibit floor with leading vendors offering innovative plant-based foods, beverages, products, services and brands as well as an extensive educational conference broken into three tracks, keynote speakers and networking opportunities. For more information about the event please visit http://www.plantbasedworldexpo.com/.

The event aims to break down the walls and myths surrounding vegan food — namely that it does not taste good or it’s nutritional lacking as compared to other diets. The event emerges as interest and sales of plant-based and vegan foods continue to skyrocket. As an example, the global almond milk market just surpassed $2 billion, just as all vegan categories are continuing to grow.

The Confederation of Danish Industry and the Vegetarian Society of Denmark (Dansk Vegetarisk Forening) have joined forces to create a Danish pavilion during the Plant Based World Conference & Expo 2019 in New York to promote Danish plant-based companies in the US. By participating at the Danish pavilion your company will benefit not only from better visibility but also from Denmark’s positive image as a leader in high quality standards.   Additionally, the industry has its own trade group - The Plant Based Foods Association (link: https://plantbasedfoods.org/), which continues to attract new members as a growing number of businesses enter the market with vegan products.
