Plant Based World Europe has added even more leading vegan brands to its 2021 lineup, to be held in London’s Business Design Centre.

Plant Based World Europe, the first dedicated event for veganism and sustainability in the continent, has expanded its roster to feature some of the world’s leading brands.

To be held in London’s Business Design Centre on April 8 and 9, 2021, Plant Based World Europe, one of the biggest companies joining is OmniPork, set to launch in the UK in January 2021. The plant-based meat brand will feature its pork alternatives, including mince, luncheon meat, and pork strips made from a blend of plant-based protein comprising pea, non-GMO soy, shiitake mushrooms and rice.

To add to the list of alt-protein, Miami Burger will showcase its vegan Italian meatballs and existing range of burger patties, sausages and bacon. More highlights include products currently under development, like plant-based mayonnaise and vegan honey, which even fooled professional beekeepers on testing, the brand claimed.

New Jersey-based Mediterranean foods brand Esti Foods will debut its clean-label plant-based meat and cheese alternatives in the UK. The lineup includes non-GMO soy and wheat protein-based burgers and meatballs, as well as vegan cheese like feta and mozzarella.

One Planet Pizza, the UK’s first frozen vegan pizza company, will sample its Cheezeburger Pizza on the Meatless Farm stall. The pizza uses vegan cheeseburger chunks made from pea protein and Smoky Applewood Vegan cheese. The Norwich-based company will also talk about its new frozen pizza delivery service.

British brand LoveSeitan will present its range of products that includes bestsellers like Seitan Pepperoni, Facon Bacon, Funky Chyck’n and Simply Seitan logs and diced pieces.

Plant Based World Europe’s managing director, Jonathan Morley, said: “The plant-based industry is going through an unprecedented period of growth and innovation right now as a result of changing consumer habits. It is predicted that a quarter of Brits will be vegan or vegetarian by 2025, so there is no better time for the industry to come together to showcase this innovation in one place.

“With the world’s biggest plant-based brands set to join the lineup, the show will offer an unmissable opportunity for foodservice, retail, and healthcare professionals, along with distributors, investors, and manufacturers to discover new trends and learn how plant-based foods can be easily adopted into their business models. In addition to the incredible scope of brands joining us, visitors will also benefit from a comprehensive conference programme and the culinary theatre, where they can experience the foods first-hand.”
