GlobalMeatNews is delighted to announce that we will be welcoming Heather Mills as the keynote speaker for our plant-based protein conference in Amsterdam this summer.

Speaking during our ‘Market barriers and how to overcome them’ theme, Mills will be discussing how a plant-based lifestyle has had a significant impact on her life following a car crash in 1993 that resulted in the amputation of her left lower leg.

Mills has been publicly open about how her accident made her adopt a plant-based lifestyle in order to avoid infection and has influenced many others to follow a meat alternative routine.

Following the accident, Mills founded her own plant-based business VBites, which has gone on to be a huge success.

VBites, which manufactures a wide range of plant-based alternatives such as meat and fish, has a wide global presence and exports its 130 products to 24 countries.

The business is continuing to expand its presence after Mills recently revealed that she would be converting a former Walkers factory in County Durham, UK into a VBites production site.

Mills will join nine other global speakers for the event, who will deliver findings, facts and analysis on the development of the plant-based protein sector and how it may influence the future international meat industry.

Held at the Marriott hotel in Amsterdam, Holland, GlobalMeatNews’ Shaping the Future of Plant-based Protein​ event will comprise a full-day conference on 26 June 2019, as well as an evening networking session on 25 June.

The event is not to be missed and is a global platform to learn about plant-based proteins from different international markets.

Tickets are still available for the event, but are expected to sell out quickly! You can still purchase early bird rates for €475 plus VAT until 29 March. This will then increase to €590 plus VAT.
