Plant Based World Expo

Companies looking to meet growing consumer demand for plant-based are encouraged to attend the Plant Based World Expo North America, to be held Dec. 9-10 at the Javits Center in New York. PBW is the only professional 100 percent plant-based focused event for foodservice and retail professionals, distributors, investors and manufacturers.

Plant Based World Expo will feature renowned plant-based experts, thought leaders and innovators, including keynote speaker Tyler Lorenzen, former NFL player and current CEO of Puris Proteins. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear from industry leaders from The Plant Based Foods Association; Vejii; The Good Food Institute; Envision Group, A Division of Compass Group; Kroger; Spins; and many others.

“The plant-based industry is growing faster than ever and is expected to exceed $162 billion within the next decade,” says Benjamin Davis, VP of content at PBW. “Our programming this year is carefully curated to meet the evolving needs of foodservice and retail industry professionals who are looking for the best ways to meet enormous consumer demand. From merchandising and e-commerce to plant-based trends and next generation plant-based products, PBW has it all.”

An estimated 3,000 attendees will have the opportunity to sample new products from companies committed to harnessing the power of plant-based. Representatives from the Culinary Institute of America, Chipotle, Conagra Brands, Sodexo, Blue Apron, UNFI, Aramark, Triumph Hotels and others are already registered.

In addition to the industry speakers, the B2B conference and expo features 250-plus exhibitors and brands from around the world, plus high-level networking, learning and tasting opportunities. Exhibitors such as Hooray Foods and Omni Foods will showcase innovations in plant-based pork products (bacon and SPAM), while Eclipse Foods will serve up plant-based ice-cream that’s creamy and functions just like a dairy ice-cream base. Functional plant-based foods such as plant protein mixes, bars and drinks will also be on display as well as sustainable packaging; non-GMO, organic and natural clean label flavorings; fast-casual options; and much more.
