Q: What is Plant-Based Food Week?
A: The masterminds behind #PlantBasedWeek is none other than Plant-Based Foods of Canada (or PBFC for short)
PBFC acts as a collective voice for the producers of plant-based products in Canada.
There has been a rise in demand for plant-based foods, I mean…in 2021, a Leger researcher found that 67% of Canadians are already on that plant-based wave.
The creative geniuses at PBFC have decided to come together and create a yearly national (hopefully international) recognized week dedicated towards inspiring Canadians to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets.
AKA ... #PlantBasedWeek
Whether you’re making a lifestyle change, crossing an item off your New Year’s resolutions list or simply looking for something different to eat, #PlantBasedWeek is all about exploring new options.
Q: When is it?
A: #PlantBasedWeek will be every year from March 21st to March 25th.
Mark your calendars well people, this week is not to be missed!
Q: Who's participating in Plant-Based Food of Canada?
A: Well…there’s a lot actually. Just to name a few, there’s Dole, Earth’s Own, Kellogg’s, Daiya, and (of course) Zoglo’s.
