Secretary-General at the Vegetarian Society of Denmark and Regional Representative for Europe & Director of Policy Initiatives at the International Vegetarian Union (IVU). Rune-Christoffer Dragsdahl and his organization took several strategical initiatives in Denmark, which involved many other stakeholders, from farmer’s associations and businesses to other NGO’s. This paved the way for a landmark deal between the Government and Parliament, which in 2021 resulted in 675 million DKK earmarked a fund for initiatives to develop the plant-based sector in Denmark; and a National Action Plan for Plant-Based Foods, which was published in October 2023.
