ENSA was established in January 2003 as the voice of natural soy foods producers in Europe. In 2012, it became the European Plant-based Foods Association to reflect the evolution of the market. ENSA members produce high-quality plant-based foods with particular focus on alternatives to dairy and meat, including drinks (based on soy, rice, oats, almond, coconut etc.), alternatives to other dairy products (alternatives to yogurt, desserts, creams, ice creams, spreads, cheese) and meat alternatives (tofu, tempeh, seitan, burgers, ready meals etc.). ENSA ‘s mission is to contribute to mainstreaming plant-based foods for healthier and more sustainable diets by raising awareness about these products amongst policy makers.
