Plant-based eating is healthy, sustainable and cost efficient

Remarkable scientific findings were presented by fourteen renowned scientists during the Alpro Foundation’s 20th anniversary symposium “The moment for plant-based eating is now“. The aim of the foundation is to support scientific research on plant-based nutrition and to promote knowledge and awareness of issues around plant-based food and health.

They gave answers to the following questions:

  • Is plant-based eating a hype?
  • Current food habits in Europe, far from plant-based eating?
  • Can more plant-based eating contribute to living longer in good health?
  • How can we convince young people to replace their snacks and soft drinks with healthy foods?
  • How much can the government save in health care costs by promoting plant-based eating?
  • To what extent can our eating habits contribute positively to our planet?
