Our Restaurant and Menu Certification Campaign seeks to help restaurants and chefs of all types of cuisines worldwide to offer whole food, plant-based meals in their menus that are truly healthful and sustainable for both humans and the planet. WFPB.ORG provides support and education as well as a distinctive seal that surpasses the Michelin and Zagat accreditations in terms of the quality of the food that it certifies.
