About us
ProVeg International is a food awareness organisation working to transform the global food system by replacing animal-based products with plant-based and cultured alternatives. We work with decision-making bodies, companies, investors, the media, and the general public to help the world transition to a society and economy that are less reliant on animal agriculture and more sustainable for all humans, animals, and our planet. We have offices in nine countries across four continents and are active around the world. ProVeg has a permanent observer status with the UNFCCC, special consultative status with ECOSOC, is accredited for UNEA, and has received the United Nations’ Momentum for Change Award.

At ProVeg, we aim to be impactful, pragmatic, and solution-oriented, empowering our stakeholders to identify opportunities and transform challenges into solutions. We base our strategy on empirically-based evidence and seek to stay abreast of the latest research to inform our activities. We evaluate our programs to ensure maximum impact and efficiency towards reaching our goals.

ProVeg fosters a work culture in which challenges become opportunities to learn and thrive. Because changing the global food system is a huge undertaking, we are looking for new team members who are impact-driven, pragmatic and professional.
