Welcome to our 2023 Annual Review

We’re very proud to present our review of ProVeg’s activities during 2023. As well as all our usual work, We expanded our global presence with the inauguration of two pivotal country offices in Nigeria and Malaysia, fostering greater outreach and impact. Meanwhile, our active engagement at COP28 in Dubai, UAE, underscored our commitment to addressing climate change on a global scale, driving discussions and initiatives towards sustainable solutions.

Another significant milestone was the launch of the groundbreaking Kickstarting for Good program. This pioneering initiative is the world’s first incubator and accelerator tailored to the needs of nonprofit organizations and impactful initiatives dedicated to food-system transformation.

Looking ahead to 2024, we remain steadfast in our mission to promote the benefits of plant-based diets and accelerate transformative change in the global food system. With your unwavering support, we’ll continue to raise awareness and drive tangible action towards building a healthier and more sustainable future for the planet and all who live on it. Thank you for being part of our journey.
