The World Plant-Based Awards 2020, in association with Plant Based World, are a celebration of innovation and excellence across the plant-based food and drink industry. We’ve asked our judging panel what they are hoping to see from this year’s entries which should hopefully offer some inspiration.
There are 15 trophies to be won in total, and being shortlisted provides a hallmark of success that will prevail long after the awards draw to a close. The deadline for the awards is 24 July.

Since working at FoodBev, I have been tracking consumer trends within the industry and have witnessed a surge of plant-based products from all over the world.

For me, important aspects I’m looking out for in this year’s entries are:
International & National Head, ProVeg Incubator
As a member of the judging panel of the World Plant-Based Awards 2020, I will be looking for innovations with these five criteria – the five Pros of ProVeg International. They are also guidelines for our work at ProVeg Incubator, the first incubator in the world to exclusively support startups that are replacing animal-based foods.
The product or ingredient should take all these criteria into account and stand out in at least one of them.
