This year’s Natural Product Expo West left no doubt that the future of food is plant-based. We visited with 50 PBFA members who enthusiastically displayed our “Proud Member” signs.

Thanks to the generosity of Daiya Foods, PBFA staff had our first booth at Expo. We were delighted to engage with the constant flow of attendees inquiring about our work. Our sponsorship of the Seed & Wine event led to a great night of networking and relaxing.

In big news, we recently released PBFA’s first-ever farm bill platform! Just in time for Expo, Michele participated in a panel of industry leaders discussing the farm bill for 2018 (see the pix on Facebook). Please see our press release and the letter we sent to Congress. We received excellent media coverage in Politico.

We also hosted a successful happy hour, celebration of our 2nd anniversary. In just two short years we have grown to more than 200 company, affiliate, and investor members. (Thanks again to Daiya for the beer and food.)

Check out the fun pictures from our happy hour.
