Our mission

ProVeg International is a food awareness organisation working to transform the global food system by replacing animal-based products with plant-based and cultured alternatives. ProVeg has permanent-observer status with the UNFCCC, is accredited for UNEA, and has received the United Nations’ Momentum for Change Award.

The Food System as a Multi-Problem Solution

Many of the world’s most urgent problems share a common cause: our food choices. ProVeg is dedicated to raising awareness of how we can tackle these problems through diet and food systems change. ProVeg empowers people and institutions to transform the global food system by promoting attractive animal-free foods. Our food choices can be a multiproblem solution.

The 5 Pros


The Power of Shared Purpose

Vision

Our vision is to create a world where everyone chooses delicious and healthy food that is good for all humans, animals, and our planet.

Mission

Our goal is to reduce the global consumption of animal-based products by 50% by the year 2040.

To achieve this, ProVeg works with international decision-making bodies, governments, food producers, retailers, investors, the media, and the general 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 the planet.
