On 30 May, Luis Uribe, CEO of Nutrition & Santé (France), was unanimously elected as the new President of the European Plant-Based Foods Association (ENSA). The newly appointed Board of Directors also includes Guillaume Millet from Alpro/Danone, Olivier Clanchin from Olga, and Andrea Panzani from Valsoia. The President and Board members are appointed for a period of three years, until 2025.

The European plant-based food sector has been growing rapidly over the past years, representing a market estimated at 3.6 billion EUR in Europe. As pioneers in the area of plant-based nutrition, the members of ENSA have played an important role in raising awareness about the benefits of a more plant-based diet among policy-makers and stakeholders over the past 20 years.

The plant-based foods sector has a major role to play in the societal effort to evolve into a more sustainable and resilient food system that seeks to meet consumers’ expectations and needs. “As European companies in the plant-based foods sector, we have the collective responsibility to offer consumers tasty, nutritious, convenient and sustainable foods. As members of ENSA, we want to play our part in informing public policies which will make the sustainable choice the easy choice. As President, I know ENSA can count on the support of its all members and allies to make a difference”, said ENSA President Luis Uribe upon his election.
