FoodBev Media marketing manager, Matthew Rushton, said: “After witnessing the quality of entries in our first year hosting the World Plant-Based Awards, it is clear that innovation in this sector is booming. To see over 200 entries from around the world also confirms what we predicted, that not only is the plant-based market a truly international one, it is one that will continue to grow.

“Our awards celebrate some of the most ambitious new plant-based products of 2020 from both established brands and start-ups. Whilst we would have loved to celebrate these successes at the Plant Based World Conference & Expo in New York, we can’t wait to watch the ceremony with you all on October 2.”
