Michele Simon, Executive Director of the Plant Based Foods Association expressed, “Working closely with the top plant-based food companies, I understand the challenges many of these businesses face, especially in the start-up phase. I am happy to support Plant Based World’s effort to address these challenges by bringing together experts in the field to educate and inspire, and to showcase the exciting innovation of this fast-growing food sector.”

The venture capital community will have a major presence at PBW, actively seeking out opportunities to get involved with plant-based businesses in all stages of development. Lisa Feria, CEO of Stray Dog Capital and Syndicate Leader of the GlassWall Syndicate investment group stated, “I am very excited about the Plant Based World Conference and Expo. At Stray Dog Capital we’re always looking for exciting innovation, trends and partners. The PBW team has put together a compelling and diverse slate that would get any Venture Capital investor excited. We’re looking forward to learning, growing and investing in some great companies.”

The conference and expo will feature two full days of B2B education and networking opportunities. The second day, Saturday, June 8, will be open to the general public as well as trade and healthcare professionals. The conference will have sessions broken into Business, Community and Healthcare tracks.

“Our partnership with the food service industry on shifting to plant-based meals creates healthier consumers, combats climate change, and saves money on ingredient and purchasing cost. It turns out that being better for the planet is also better for the bottom line. We’re thrilled to be part of the Plant Based World event and for attendees to learn about the exciting innovations in the field that could forever change the food system,” said Josh Balk, Vice President of Farm Animal Protection at the Humane Society of the United States.
