Is the plant-based movement forgetting the importance of organic production?
You are invited to an eye-opening webinar. The importance of organic production seems forgotten in the race to make plant-based products. But the organic principles should be held close to our hearts in the way we build up our plant-based food systems. There are many benefits to biodiversity and insect lives with organic production compared to conventional. The organic principles go hand in hand with the plant-based consumers’ values and ethics. Participate in this webinar to get the knowledge and inspiration on why you need to think about organics. Get tools and examples that you can use in your country.
