Who are we?
The Green Protein Alliance (GPA) is a unique alliance between 25 retailers, the catering industry, food producers and 10 knowledge partners in the Netherlands, supported by the Dutch Government. Their common goal: restoring a healthy and sustainable balance in protein consumption.
What are our goals?
The current ratio of plantbased:animal protein in the Dutch diet is 37:63. GPA’s ambition is to realize a 50:50 balance no later than 2025. This balance is a first step towards a more healthy and sustainable diet. Our Green Protein Growth Plan (in Dutch) describes how we realize this ambition.
Why is this important?
Experts worldwide agree: the protein transition, or shift, is the most urgent challenge in the food domain.
What have we accomplished so far?
The GPA was founded in 2017. Already in its first year, the association proved that a transition approach, involving all chain-partners, works: consumption of meat and dairy is declining, while that of pulses, nuts, meat analogues and plant-based alternatives for dairy are rising.
