Upfield Foods, acclaimed to be the largest plant-based consumer products company in the world, has unveiled a new initiative and global advocacy platform to encourage people to eat healthy, plant-based diets towards attaining sustainable and healthy food systems.
Launched on June 5 2020 World Environment Day, the A Better Plant-Based Future initiative is in line with Upfield’s purpose to make people healthier and happier with great-tasting, plant-based nutrition products that are good for people and better for the planet, said the company.
