More than 80 of the world’s leading plant-based food brands will join the show floor to showcase the very latest industry innovations.

Meat-alternatives will be a key focus on the show floor, with many of the exhibitors set to showcase their latest developments designed to offer consumers an easy way to reduce their meat and fish intake by offering plant-based foods in recognizable formats. For example, The Meatless Farm will present its range of pea and soya-protein based products including mince, sausages, and burgers.

The award-winning, planet-friendly vegan comfort food brand, Biff’s, will also join with its jackfruit-based range, including burgers and wings which feature a crispy, 12-spiced coating.

Creators of 100 percent plant-based seafood, Seabloom, will present its range of fish-alternatives that retain the nutritional benefits of fish without causing harm to the ocean for the first time. Using natural ingredients including seaweed, the range includes ‘Tuna Free’ flakes available in naked, olive oil, and lemon varieties.

Also presenting protein substitutes is OmniFoods. The company has combined Western innovation with Asian application to create a range of plant-based pork alternatives that are both succulent and tender and are suitable for steaming, pan-frying, deep-frying, or turning into meatballs.

Alongside meat and fish alternatives, dairy-free innovations will also be a focus. The maker of the award-winning plant-based cheese range, Sheese, will join the show floor to present its wide range of flavours and styles that are dairy and gluten-free, as well as non-GMO. The range includes hard, creamy, grated, and sliced varieties.

OGGs will join the show floor with its baked goods range including chocolate fudge, Victoria sponge, and mince pies made using aquafaba, an ingredient hailed for its egg-like qualities. Alongside baked goods, the brand also offers the egg-alternative in ready to use formats for at-home baking.
