Protein Trade Mission to Toronto. Canada

1-4 November 2022

Is your company active in the field of innovative plant-based foods and do you want to explore international collaborations and markets? Then the Protein Trade Mission to Canada is an opportunity for you. The mission includes a visit to the first-ever international Plant Forward event in Toronto, company visits and introductions in the protein sector in Canada.

The demand for plant-based foods is increasing and there are many opportunities for technology providers, food producers, retailers, foodservice operators, and brands to serve the consumer better and more inspiring foods. Consumers are also seeking more healthy and sustainable diets and they are increasing their plant-based foods intake.

Do you want to get to know the Canadian market business ecosystem? Or are you already active in North America and would you like to expand your network? Come and join us in the Dutch Protein Trade Mission to Canada. The 5-day trade mission includes visits to inspiring companies as well as networking events with possible trade partners.

Plant Forward International Event
Two days of the trip will be dedicated to the first-ever international event, Plant Forward, showcasing Canada’s plant-based ingredients, food supply and innovation. Plant Forward will demonstrate the strength and integrity of Canada’s integrated supply chain, highlight sustainability initiatives and the latest innovations happening in Canadian crops and ingredients, and provide insights from trailblazing companies who have chosen Canada as their preferred place to invest in plant-based innovation. During the event, the companies have the opportunity to connect with food producers, growers, breeders, investors, research institutes and the government.

Added value of participation in the Protein Trade Mission
In addition to the international event, participants of the Protein Trade Mission will be offered an additional visit program with company visits and introductions in the protein sector.
