FURTHER INFORMATION

ProVeg International launched the ProVeg China programme in 2018. Plant-based eating in China has been limited to a small number of people who have shifted their diets in response to the global issues of health and environmental protection and so the establishment of a ProVeg team in the world’s most populous country represented a huge opportunity. In a short space of time, ProVeg China has strengthened its relationships with key influencers in the mainstream Chinese food industry, including manufacturers and scientists, and is actively participating in building a new future for sustainable development in the region. At the beginning of 2020, in collaboration with Shanghai Society of Food Science, ProVeg China launched the ‘Plant-Based Food Innovation Contest’ in Shanghai, the first of its kind in the world. The contest attracted around +250 students from leading universities, who were coached and mentored by industry experts, including Danone, Beyond Meat, Ferrero and Oatly. The contest has been launched at a time when the plant-based meat market in China is growing steadily, and at a faster rate than GDP growth, and has continued into 2021 with an expansion of the contest to South East Asian students, universities and companies.

We are developing and implementing exciting new food innovation programs and events in China and SouthEast Asia. Due to the growth, we now require program and operation support. You will contribute and support initiatives that underpin our success in Asia.

ABOUT US

ProVeg is an international food awareness organisation working to transform the global food system by replacing conventional animal products with plant-based and cultivated alternatives. ProVeg works with companies, governments, public institutions, medical professionals, the media, and the public to help the world transition to a society and economy that are less dependent on animal agriculture and more sustainable for humans, animals, and our planet.


We base our strategy on empirically-based evidence whenever possible. We seek to stay abreast of the latest research to inform our strategic considerations and outreach materials. We evaluate all of our programs to make sure we are allocating our resources in the best way to reach our goal.
