Plant-based products from Denmark that make a difference

Meet Danish companies showcasing their innovative plant-based products and solutions at Plant Based World Conference & Expo 2021 in London on October 15th and 16th.

At this year’s Plant Based World Conference & Expo, you can meet Danish food companies showcasing a wide range of sustainable, innovative products and solutions at the only completely plant-based B2B event in Europe.

“The Danish agriculture and food sector can deliver high quality plant-based food and beverage products to the growing consumer demand and are working towards a future, where plant-based food takes a proud role with an increased market share. We are looking forward to welcoming you at the Danish pavilion,” says Market Advisor of The Confederation of Danish Industry, Emil Stub.

The expo is dedicated to connecting plant-based brands with an audience of retailers, food service professionals and community influencers. At the Danish pavilion you can meet Cavi-art, Dryk, Nordic Quinoa, Organic Plant Protein and GRÖNT, who each have high expectations for the fair.

“Our participation is an important strategic step in the further journey for GRÖNT and building relations with distributers in UK and Europe key to promote our range of delicious meals with alternative proteins with flavours customers know and love,” says founder and CEO of GRÖNT, Anders P. Christensen.

An international strength

When asked to think of food from Denmark you might be thinking of pastry or beer. However, the Danish agricultural and food cluster is ready to provide consumers all over the world with high-quality plant-based food, as the agricultural land in Denmark provides optimal conditions for growing plants.

“Nordic Quinoa is my contribution to support plant-based food to become an international strength for Denmark. I am passionate about quinoa and its possibilities, and I want to inspire consumers to live a healthier and more sustainable life,” says founder of Nordic Quinoa, Lars Eghøj.

Since the plant-based category began to emerge, Danish food innovations have led to a wide range of products providing alternative protein sources to the growing market. At Cavi-art for instance they make plant-based seaweed-caviar – the sustainable choice for sushi and much more:

“With our products, consumers can make an active difference – for the ocean and the plate,” says CEO of Cavi-art, Jens Christian Møller Jr.

A sustainable approach

The plant-based sector is one of the fastest growing food categories, experiencing double digit growth in a trend that is expected to see sales reach $80 billion worldwide by 2024. In Denmark, there is also a rapid growth in the plant-based food with sales value growing 29% from 2018-2020, while sales volume increased by 46%. Throughout the entire Danish food value chain there is thus a keen focus on sustainable and innovative product development of plant-based foods.

“The mission of Organic Plant Protein A/S is to support and enhance the important transition towards a more plant based and sustainable diet through the development and production of high-quality organic meat analogues,” says Ulrich Kern-Hansen, founder and CEO at Organic Plant Protein.

The Danish plant drink company Dryk also has one clear mission: “The future is plant-based, and we want to make sure that is does not feel like a compromise to choose climate friendly. That is why we produce nutritious and high-quality drinks with a creamy texture and delicious 7,” says founder and CEO of Dryk, Christian Christensen.
