    Goals / Remit

    The European Alliance for Plant-based Foods (EAPF) brings together like-minded organisations in the plant-based value chain around a unique mission: To put plant-based foods at the heart of the transition towards more sustainable and healthy food systems. We represent the entire plant-based value chain: Food producers and manufacturers, NGOs, nutritionists, research & academia and consumers.

    More people are turning to plant-based foods – products made from vegetables, grains, pulses (including soy), nuts, fungi, algae – out of concerns for environmental pollution, human health or animal welfare. The Alliance strives for making this shift a reality, allowing consumers to access true, safe and sustainable alternatives to animal-based products.

    Main EU files targeted

    The Alliance focuses on all policies and legislation that touch upon plant-based foods - from sustainability to health, from agriculture to markets. We particularly focus on (non-exhaustive list):
    - The European Green Deal
    - The Farm to Fork Strategy
    - Common Organisation of Markets in agricultural products
    - Sustainable/green claims
    - Sustainable public procurement
    - Food labelling and denominations
    - Nutrition
    - Research and innovation programmes

  • Meetings


    3 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
