Restaurant and Menu Certification

WFPB 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. WFPB.ORG provides support and education as well as a distinctive seal that surpasses other vegan seals in terms of the quality of the food that it certifies.

Fastest Growing Market In the World: 

Europe: In 2020, sales of plant-based food in France were valued at almost 928 million U.S. dollars. By 2026, this figure is expected to reach almost 1.7 billion U.S. dollars. Germany and the United Kingdom both currently have a more sizeable market for plant-based food than France. This is expected to still be true in 2026.

Australia: Australia’s packaged vegan food market is currently worth almost $136 million and is set to reach $215 million by 2020. Around the World, Australia was the most popular country for plant-based in 2018, according to Google Trends, followed by the UK and New Zealand. 

Southeast Asia: Between 2012 and 2016, new vegetarian and vegan product launches increased by 140% and 440% respectively in Southeast Asia alone. 

      Fastest Growing Market In the United States:

      USA: The number of plant-based eaters in America grew by 600% from nearly 4 million in 2014 to 19.6 million in 2017

      USA: US retail sales of plant-based foods that directly replace animal products grew by 8.1% in the 12 months to August 2017. 

      USA: A 2013 Mintel survey showed that US consumers try meat alternatives for the following reasons: 33% – I think they are healthy; 31% – I enjoy the taste; 31% – I am trying to reduce my meat consumption; 30% – I’m adding protein to my diet; 23% – I’m adding variety to my meals.

          WFPB Over a Vegan Label

          Unlike whole food, plant-based foods, vegan ones can contain processed ingredients such as vegetable oils, or junk foods such as sugars and sweeteners. Even Oreos are vegan!  Therefore, a vegan symbol on your food doesn’t necessarily mean eating healthy food.

          • WFPB is also vegan. It doesn’t contain any animal ingredients or by-products.
          • WFPB contains only wholesome ingredients such as fruits and vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts, seeds, spices and other plant-based ingredients.
          • WFPB does not include processed foods, colorants, dangerous additives, added sugars and oils
          • WFPB is kind, conscious, sustainable, and healthy!

          MORE SALES

          Whole food, plant-based is kind, sustainable, wise and extremely profitable. Research shows that customers are more willing to purchase conscious products and services that are healthier for themselves, their families, and the planet.


          Conscious consumers expect more than tossed salads or steamed vegetables— they are looking for great restaurant experiences with health promoting, satiating, and delicious meals made with healthful, unprocessed, and fresh ingredients.
