Simon Billing to chair Plant-Based Week webinar

11th May 2022 - 07:00
Simon Billing, executive director of Eating Better, will chair a webinar titled ‘Is plant-based now an established part of the menu or do we still need to campaign?’ on Wednesday 11th May at 11am.

Eating Better is a movement for change of 60 organisations working to accelerate the transition from producing and eating too much meat and dairy to a fairer, healthier and more sustainable food system that is better for animal welfare and nature.  

A panel of industry leaders will discuss the role of plant-based food, where it now sits in the 'everyday' menu cycle and question whether there is a need for further campaigning. The panel includes chair of the PSC100 group Andy Jones, chief dietetic & catering technician at Nottingham University Hospitals Nicola Strawther and Charlie Huson from Humane Society International.  

Andy, who won the PSC Lifetime Achievement Award in 2022, is chair of the PSC100 group which comprises of caterers, dietitians, politicians, healthy eating campaigners and suppliers who operate in the public sector and use their collective 'clout' to drive government legislation and action towards helping people adopt healthier lifestyles through catering and education initiatives.

Nicola has over 20 years of experience in bringing valuable knowledge of health service catering and nutrition management. Charlie worked with the Humane Society International on their ‘Forward Food’ programme to encourage foodservice providers to create healthy and sustainable menu options. The programme aims to enable the catering industry to shift the focus of menus away from meals centred on animal products and put more plant-based food on plates.
